  • Recently scientists from the US have developed the first bio-electronic medicine -- an implantable, biodegradable wireless device that speeds nerve regeneration and improves the healing of a damaged nerve.
  • The technology called as "bio-electronic medicine" provides therapy and treatment over a clinically relevant period of time and directly at the site where it's needed, thereby reducing side effects or risks associated with conventional, permanent implants.
  • While the device has not been tested in humans, the findings offer promise as a future therapeutic option for nerve injury patients.
