Overview

We are developing implantable biodegradable electronic devices offer the potential to provide therapeutic functions for limited periods of time – weeks to months – degrading in register with the anticipated needs of the application and thus not requiring surgical removal. One application is a biodegradable radio frequency (RF) power generator connected to electrical stimulating electrodes to enhance bone regeneration.
