An external pulse generator transmits power to an internal battery-less implant.

About

Objective

Collaborate with medical device companies to further develop the technology.

Highlights

• 30% more power.

• Reduction in implant thickness.

• Increased implant lifetime.

• Can be reprogrammed externally by the user.

This technology offers the potential for major improvement in implant technology as it removes the need for internal batteries. The novel solution provides power wirelessly to the implant via an external pulse generator. The user can control the power level externally, meaning they can increase or decrease the level of stimulation at any time based on what they require.

Stage of Development

NUI Galway is currently seeking companies in the medical device domain to partner with on conducting further research.
