Researchers have implanted electrodes in brain of a person who is mostly paralyzed to enable him to have some “mind control” of motorized prosthetic arms.
Medical implants of the future may feature reconfigurable electronic platforms that can morph in shape and size dynamically.
Researchers have developed biodegradable microresonators that could soon be used in implants to control the release of painkillers within tissue.
A scientist is working to develop miniature implantable medical devices that sense and communicate wirelessly via sound waves.
Researchers have successfully implanted sensors in three male patients following nerve transfers, to transmit biosignals for wireless control of robotic arms.
Researchers show that by using a noninvasive brain-computer interface they could control a robotic arm that’s tracking a cursor on a computer screen.
Scientists are using 3D technology to help rebuild the faces of cancer patients, those hurt in accidents and people born with complex facial deformities.
Researchers decided it was time to create smarter knee implants that could monitor changes in activity as they happened.
The sensor system implant provides actionable information to optimize the therapy for patients afflicted with glaucoma.
Research from the BrainGate consortium shows that a brain-computer interface (BCI) can enable people with paralysis to directly operate an off-the-shelf tablet device just by thinking about making cursor movements and clicks.
Three patients with chronic paraplegia were able to walk over ground thanks to precise electrical stimulation of their spinal cords via a wireless implant.
Engineers and medical researchers have teamed up to create a groundbreaking 3D printed device that could someday help patients with long-term spinal cord injuries regain some function.
