Flexible PET/ITO (PolyEthylene Terephthalate/ Indium Tin Oxide) implantable electrode array for spinal cord stimulation and retina prosthesis have been developed. The electrode array is fabricated on a thin PET/ITO substrate and encapsulated with insulating material, SU-8. The PET substrate made electrodes flexible so that they could shape to contoured tissues. A layer of gold on the stimulation sites served to reduce the electrode/tissue interface impedance. Prototypes of 1×8 and 3×8 electrode… CONTINUE READING
