The sutrode combines the electrical properties of an electrode with the mechanical properties of a suture.

 

A new electrical simulation device is being pioneered by researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES).

The new device could possibly replace the use of pharmaceuticals in treating a range of medical conditions.

As reported, the team has developed novel graphene fibres that have the ability to both record electrical impulses and electrically stimulate nerves with unprecedented levels of control.
