German Scientists 3D Print Microscaffold Cochlear Implant Using Nanoscribe

An international Team of Bioengineers from the Bio-Microrobotics Laboratory of the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) partnered with the Ajou University and Microsystems Lab of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), using the Nanoscribe Photonic Professional system to create microstructure scaffolds for the Cochlear implant. Accompanied by a high-precision 3D printed steroid reservoir with a 2D MEMS-based electrode array, the medical device- “Germany’s Nanoscribe” is meant to allow patients to hear better—and by avoiding insertion trauma, preserves what hearing ability they still possess. The implant is designed to reduce the damage of residual hearing against electrode insertion trauma.
