- The implanted chip has 98 electrodes to stimulate the retina and enable patients to perceive vision.
- The device is to be implanted in the suprachoroidal space to protect the retina from mechanical damage during insertion and helps to maintain it in position.
With this implant, we aim to provide patients the ability to move around large objects such as buildings, cars and park benches and to lead more independent lives.
The Wide-View device may be most suitable for patients with retinitis pigmentosa. We hope to begin patient tests with this device in 2014.
