New real-time guidable-tip wire for surgically treating strokes

News date : 2023-07-12

Authors : Cécilia Carron

The EPFL School of Engineering spin-off Artiria has developed a wire with a guidable tip that makes it easier for neurosurgeons to navigate the dense network of cerebral arteries and get to the source of strokes. Its system has just received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Amputees feel warmth in their missing hand

News date : 2023-07-12

An unexpected discovery about temperature feedback has led to new bionic technology that allows amputees to sense the temperature of objects ­– both hot and cold – directly in the phantom hand. The technology opens up new avenues for non-invasive prosthetics.

Deployable electrodes for minimally invasive craniosurgery
