A new generation of implantable electrodes
Therapeutic outcomes from clinical neural implants are limited by their mechanical properties. Their stiff and rigid designs present a mechanical mismatch compared to the soft and curved tissues they interface with, thereby constraining the physiological motion dynamics of the nervous system.
At Neurosoft Bioelectronics, we are addressing this issue by engineering elasticity in thin film materials to manufacture implantable electrodes that are much softer and flexible, and that can seamlessly interface with the nervous system.
It is often a long and laborious process to bring a new technology from the laboratory to the market. According to Stephanie Lacour, head of the Laboratory for Soft Bioelectronic Interfaces (LSBI) at EPFL, “These discoveries can be so far ahead of the curve that...
