Carbon fiber electrodes: a hope for many pathologies

The carbon fiber electrodes could be the keystone for those suffering from some pathologies: they could allow people with prostheses to be in control; they would be able to stimulate the sacral nerve to restore bladder control is stimulate the cervical vagus nerve to treat epilepsy is provide deep brain stimulation as a possible treatment for Parkinson’s.

Carbon fiber electrodes: a hope for many pathologies

The development of this plant of the biomedical technology is due to the experts of University of Michigan which demonstrated in rats, following the transplantation of a tiny implantable carbon fiber electrode, the potential to provide along-term brain-computer interface capable of capturing the range and nuances of electrical signals over long periods of time.
