NerveRepack is a groundbreaking research project that aims to transform the lives of individuals with amputated or paralyzed limbs. The project's mission is to design and fabricate innovative implantable neuronal interfaces that can bidirectionally communicate with exoprostheses and exoskeletons. This pioneering initiative seeks to address the current limitations of medical devices for individuals with limb loss or paralysis, offering a new horizon of mobility and sensory experience.
The role of Fraunhofer IZM is to contribute to the design of the implantable module and develop a biocompatible thin-film encapsulation that will enable long-term device operation within the body without compromising patient safety.
