Experts discuss novel cuff electrodes for in vivo peripheral nerve research, including the importance of electrode design, how to select the right cuff, implantation techniques and application results from nerve stimulation and blocking.

Cuff electrodes are used for artificial excitation of, and recording from peripheral nerves. The design and technical properties of these electrodes are highly critical to the success of research and therapeutic approaches: High electrical insulation, sealing closure mechanisms and minimally traumatic material properties are the most important features which the electrodes need to offer. °AirRay research Micro Cuffs offer different solutions addressing these requirements.

During this webinar, sponsored by CorTec, Dr. Téa Tsaava, Chris Langdale, and Dr. Martin Schüttler discuss the technological background of nerve cuff electrodes, how to select the right cuff design based on your research needs, and best practices for preparing and performing cuff implantation procedures. Dr. Téa Tsaava and Chris Langdale give insight into in vivo experiments conducted with the Micro Cuff Sling and Micro Cuff Tunnel. Case studies include results from neural recording, stimulation and blocking for different applications and detail methodology of the surgical procedure.
