The cuff electrode provides a stable interface with the peripheral nerve, which has been widely utilized in both basic research and clinical practice over the past few decades. In this paper, we present a microfabricated, parylene-based self-locking cuff electrode. The cuff diameter can be adjusted to accommodate the nerve properly during implantation. This type of cuff electrodes is easy to implant and the cuff was made of the thin, flexible, and biocompatible parylene substrate. Moreover, the… Expand
