Wi-fi and battery-free implants can revive the motion in paralyzed patients. Scientists have discovered that optigenetics which can help as an indicator to modulate functions of neurons groups in brain. The biological technique can convert signals to electrical potentials that can make up neurons to perform action. The invention can ease the living of the paralyzed and also eliminate their dependency on pain killers and opioids. In the beginning, the researchers used optical fiber to send signals to the brain cells. However the method was not successful as it requires a control station which is too tedious to manage.
Battery-free Implants can control Neuron Groups in Brain
Researchers have now come up with the battery-free method of controlling neuron groups. The method can help in the free movement of neurons using wi-fi electronics. These devices possess long life as they run on an exterior oscillating magnetic fields, which means more power and less consumption. Also, they do not require heavy maintenance and in addition to their superior quality they are considerably lighter than the previous versions. Once they set inside the body by a simple surgical process they do not show hostile results. And the best part is that their performance does not hamper within the physique over time.
Battery-free implants are completely safe to use and does not possess any infection threat. However, once in 15 years the machine is replaced with the new device. It can make the life of differently-abled people easier by allowing them to be self-dependent and more confident.
