Development of 4 channel cuff-type electrode with integrated amplifier for peripheral nerve interfacing

Flexible, 4 channel polyimide based cuff electrode for FES application were designed with monolithic (CNM) amplifier (P-MOS) and filter integrated to the substrate. An advantage of the cuff electrode is the easy implantation at the site of recording or stimulation, causing minor irritation to tissue even for chronic application.

The possible applications are recording action potentials from different nerves to monitor neural signals and/or to understand the post surgical conditions of the nerve.
