Research in the Implanted Devices Group is aimed at restoring function to paralysed muscles using Functional Electrical Stimulation, FES.
Current projects include:
- Rubber selection for long-term implantation
- Investigating the hermeticity of microelectronic packages for implantation
- Spinal cord injury and electrical stimulation for rehabilitation and health: SLARSI, Julie Hill (Footprints in the Snow), FES Cycling . A video on the First International FES sports day is also available to view online or to download.
- The development of neural prosthesis to increase the quality of life of people affected by vestibular disorders: CLONS.
- A novel electrode book for multi-functional restoration after spinal cord injury
- Neuwalk: pioneering novel neuroprosthetic concepts to restore motor functions after severe spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease
- Restoring bladder control using Micro-channel electrode neural interfaces
- Selective Stimulation of Quadriceps as a Biomechanical Means to Improve Efficiency and Power Output of FES Cycling
- Investigating the application of PEEK to implanted electronic devices
- Neutralisation of myoelectric interference from recorded nerve signals using models of the electrode impedance
- Minimal IC Sealing Methods for Small Implanted Devices
- External Controller for Dog Bladder Fullness Monitor (DBFM)
