. - With the help of new silicon-based compounds, scientists - and patients - are getting a significant new charge out of the tiny lithium batteries used in implantable devices to help treat nervous system and other disorders.
The lithium battery is the workhorse of implantable devices, which are stimulators used to jump-start the heart and help the central nervous syst......Full article >>>
ty nervous system wiring at the heart of Parkinson's, epilepsy and incontinence.
"The idea is that whenever you have a broken nerve connection, you can supply the electrical impulse to complete the circuit," West explains.
The microstimulator was developed by a consortium including UW-Madison's Organosilicon Research Center, Argonne National Laboratory, Advanced Bionics Corp., th......Full article >>>
thium batteries are used in scores of applications, from spacecraft to iPods.
Patented through the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the new organosilicon compound technology is also being developed through a new start-up company, Polyron, Inc. The work to develop the new organosilicon compounds was funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a federal technology age......Full article >>>
