IPAS proudly part of the pioneering team to develop non-invasive nerve repair technology

Sara - The University of Adelaide - 19/2/19Research worldwide has been left unanswered to develop tools for repairing effectively damaged neuronal tissue, which may have serious detrimental effects on patient life quality. An innovative and minimally invasive graft-antenna, which can function concurrently as a wireless simulator and adhesive scaffold for nerve repair, has come to the answer. More amazingly, the graft antenna is biocompatible and does not require circuitry or separate electrodes to stimulate tissue. This innovative device, also highlighted by MIT Technology Review,  was developed under a multidisciplinary research team led by Dr Antonio Lauto (University of Western Sydney), Dr Giuseppe Tettamanzi (IPAS – the University of Adelaide), Prof Marcus Stoodley (Macquarie University), and  Dr Damia Mawad (University of New South Wales).
