Report Description

Medical Bionics is a multidisciplinary field of research combining biology and electronics to develop implantable devices designed to provide long-term safe and effective sensory or motor function following damage to nerve or muscle tissue. Importantly, there are many devices currently undergoing development, fueling the expectation that this field will undergo major expansion over the next decade. These devices consist of retinal prostheses for providing visual cues for the blind; Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) to assist paraplegics to stand and walk; DBS to treat severe depression and related psychiatric disorders; vestibular prostheses to assist patients with severe balance disorders, and recording/feedback devices such as brain-computer interfaces and peripheral nerve recording arrays to control computer-assisted devices including artificial limbs.

For many decades, the substitution or enhancement of damaged human tissue with artificial devices and systems has been a critical aspect of health care. An estimated 2 million patients worldwide are affected by kidney failure and the number of patients diagnosed with the disease continues to increase at a rate of 5-7% per year. Taiwan, Japan, Mexico, the United States, and Belgium currently have the highest prevalence of kidney failure. And while extensive data on worldwide mortality rates is lacking, a 2007 report shows that U.S. mortality risk was 15% higher than in Europe and 33% higher than in Japan on comparable treatment modalities. The best and most cost-effective treatment option for end-stage organ failure remains the donation and transplantation of organs. Organ scarcity, religion, under-represented ethnic groups, consent problems, lack of comprehension, and general ethical issues, however, present difficult obstacles to organ donation, reflecting the difficulty of graft recruitment and allocation. As they wait for a donated kidney to become available, most patients with kidney disease require dialysis. For a kidney transplant, the average time a person spends on the waiting list is 2 and a half to 3 years, but it may be shorter or longer than this.
