Design Innovation: Helix Cuffs

Our °AirRay Cuff electrode technology has been extended by another design: the Helix Cuff. Inspired by designs from the Huntington Research Institute, the Helix Cuff is one of the self-adjusting electrodes in our portfolio.



Why Closed Loop?

About the advantages of responsive approaches for personalized therapies |

Neuromodulation can be an effective treatment for a variety of neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, such as Parkinson’s Disease, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (Swann et al., 2018). The treatment uses electrical stimulation pulses that are transmitted to underlying nerve tissue and can be differentiated into either open- or closed-loop (Gardner 2013; Ghasemi et al., 2018). Of particular interest for personalization of therapy, and further advancement of the field, are closed-loop approaches.




Details: Meander Contacts

The use of electrodes in the peripheral nervous system requires mechanical and electrical stability as well as the gentlest possible handling of the nerve. In order to meet these requirements, we have developed a special contact shape for our °AirRay Cuff electrodes.



How °AirRay Electrodes Are Produced

For our vision to build active implants for recording and stimulating of brain activity, we have developed most of the technological components ourselves – such as our °AirRay electrodes. The manufacturing process offers flexible design options and has evolved over the years.



The 1st Electrode at Our New Facility

In the summer of 2018, CorTec took a big step into the future and moved to its own premises with its own production facility.

After the relocation of the office workplaces was completed by August, we still had the biggest task ahead of us: the commissioning of the clean room.
