News Flash: Roger Grace's Blog on MEMS Commercialization 2007 - "The future is very bright for MEMS, especially in the "killer application" sector. Whereas in the past only a handful of these high-volume applications existed, I expect to see many more opportunities for MEMS in many other areas, including biomedical applications." This has been found to be true recently with Yole's 2011 analysis of the MEMS industry.
Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module
This Category includes the Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation).
This is a short presentation that focuses on the retinal prostheses that uses an array of micro-sized electrodes that is placed on a patient's retina to pick up rays of light sent from a camera on the eyeglasses of the patient.
A narrated presentation is available on YouTube. Click the link below.
