Customer: Intelligent Medical Implants
The Learning Retina Implant System has a modular design and consists of three main components: the Retinal Stimulator (the component actually implanted in the eye), the Visual Interface and the Pocket Processor. The Visual Interface includes a built-in camera that captures images from the wearer's surroundings. This image information is processed by the Pocket Processor and translated into stimulation commands.
These commands are sent from the Pocket Processor to the Retinal Stimulator inside the eye via wireless transmission. They are then transformed into electrical pulses by a microchip in the Retinal Stimulator. The electrical pulses generated by the Retinal Stimulator stimulate the retina electrically and thus give the implant wearer useful selective visual perception.
Due to the sensitive nature of the product, the packaging is key to ensuring safe storage of the system. Antistat have worked closely with IMI Devices to provide the right solution for the storage of the stimulator.
With experience in the electronics and medical industry, Antistat are fully aware of the costly damage that humidity can do to electronic parts and components, and provided a moisture barrier bag solution ensuring that every Implant System is stored safely and cost effectively prior to assembly.
