Proposal Title Commercial Readiness of Microfabricated Cochlear Electrode Arrays
Category Materials Science and Advanced Manufacturing
Abstract MEMStim LLC designs and sells microfabricated electrode arrays as components in neurostimulator devices. Such devices are implanted in the body and use electrical stimulation to replace lost neural function. The applications include vision loss, hearing loss, heart failure and paralysis, just to name a few. Our initial target market is in cochlear implant neurostimulators for hearing loss. In this project MEMStim will address the areas of manufacturability, strategic partnerships and IP protection.
Amount Awarded $417,425
Keywords Cochlear, manufacturability, medical, stimulation.
