Disease relevance of Bionics


High impact information on Bionics

  • Spinal recurrent inhibition via Renshaw cells and proprioceptive feedback via skeletal muscle and muscle spindle afferents have been hypothesized to constitute a compound feedback system [Windhorst (1989) Afferent Control of Posture and Locomotion; Windhorst (1993) Robots and Biological Systems--Towards a New Bionics] [2].
  • The patient was then successfully reimplanted with the Advance Bionics device [1].
  • METHODS: Fifteen cadaver temporal bones underwent surface preparation and were implanted with one of the following perimodiolar electrode arrays: Combi 40+PM (MedEl Corporation), HiFocus II (Advanced Bionics Corporation), or Contour (Cochlear Corporation) [3].
  • RESULTS: The 21 specimens included cases implanted with the Symbion Ineraid, Cochlear Corporation Nucleus 22-channel, Cochlear Corporation Nucleus 24-channel, a Cochlear Corporation Nucleus single channel, and Advanced Bionics Clarion C1 devices [4].
  • These strategies were implemented in the Platinum speech processor from Advanced Bionics Corporation (Sylmar, CA) [5].

Associations of Bionics with chemical compounds

  • All major manufacturers of multichannel implant systems, including Advanced Bionics Corp., Bionic Systems, Cochlear Pty [6].
