Amplifiers, Electronic; Electric Stimulation; Implantable Neurostimulators; Telemetry
My research interest is directed to the field of Neuroprothetics, which is a discipline related to neuroscience and biomedical engineering concerned with the development of neural prostheses. Neural prostheses are a series of devices that can substitute a motor, sensory or cognitive modality that might have been damaged as a result of an injury or a diseases. Actually my work is focused on the development of implantable devices for the nerve and muscle stimulation in small animals.
Techniques, methods & infrastructure
For the development of active implantable devices a range of technologies in the field of mechanics, electronics and software engineering are required. A workshop, workplaces for electronic assembly or software development and a clean room are part of our Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.
