Project description:

Medical devices are becoming smaller, smarter and less invasive, aiming to improve the quality of life of millions of patients. The scope of the EU-funded OPTEL-MED project is to develop an implantable device that can wirelessly stimulate the nervous system. The photovoltaic stimulator device will contain miniature electrodes significantly thinner than the ones currently used in the clinic today. It will operate with safe light delivered from outside of the body and enable precise neuromodulation. It is expected to address basic questions in neuroscience as well as find clinical application such as the stimulation of the vagus nerve.
