Patented connections for neuroimplants

Successful invention at the Laboratory for Biomedical Microtechnology



A novel process for establishing an electrical connection between a contact carrier and an associated counter-contact carrier has been developed at the Laboratory for Biomedical Microtechnology and has now been patented. The advantage of the method lies in the possibility of reliably and stably electrically connecting even densely packed contact arrays. The inventors of the process, Dr. Juan Sebastian Ordonez, Sharif Khan and Prof. Dr. Thomas Stieglitz, have also increased the long-term stability of the connection through the use of resilient elements and reduced the probability of failures. The hermetically sealed electronic arrangement and possible connections with biocompatible material enable safe and long-term stable use in electrically active implants.
