Synergia Medical is pioneering optoelectronics in neurostimulation. These devices are quite similar to pacemakers. Rather than sending an electric current to the heart, it is sent to the nervous tissue. A therapy recognized as effective, but which dates back about 20 years and which presents certain problems.
Our revolutionary neurostimulator NAOS is an implant where wires have been replaced by fiber optics and which also uses photovoltaic cells to convert optical energy into electrical impulses. This technology, a technological breakthrough, avoids the disadvantages of the neurostimulation systems currently used in epilepsy, the neurological disorder targeted.
