Drs. Douglas Shire and Dustin Tyler receive $199,913 from the Rehabilitation Research & Development Service SPiRE program to develop advanced in-line connectors
Drs. Shire & Tyler will endeavor to address the fact that while advancements in high density nerve cuff electrodes and neurostimulation technology have been significant over the last decade, chronically implantable in-line interconnection technology for the associated leads has not kept pace.  Testing of the resulting technology development will be through regularly-spaced animal trials begun approximately three months into the proposed program, which will run through the conclusion of the 15-month effort. The outcome will support the deployment of advanced implantable systems for rehabilitation for years to come, and will be easily adaptable to different channel-count requirements. Read more...
