vestibular prosthesis research

Hi, everyone--

I just wanted to throw something out there that I recently heard of, although I really don't know much about it. I work in an engineering/research environment, and apparently scientists/engineers--using nanotechnology--are working on developing very tiny vestibular prosthetic devices to help people with severely damaged vestibular systems; I think they are often particularly geared toward the elderly for fall prevention. I believe that some are implantable and some are non-implantable. This is something I'll be investigating further, as the vestibular system is now of great interest to me! I just thought some of you might be interested as well, if you haven't already heard about this line of research.

Take care,

Sponsors Lightbulb
