3D-printed Micro-scaffold Cochlear Implant May Reduce Residual Hearing Damage

Jan 22, 2020 | I-Micronews

Based on Nanoscribe’s 3D Microfabrication technology, scientists developed a 3D-microscaffold cochlear implant for steroid elution. For the first time, scientists combined a highly precise, porous 3D printed steroid reservoir with a 2D MEMS-based electrode array to fabricate a novel cochlear implant. This implant is designed to reduce the damage of residual hearing against electrode insertion […]
