Researchers are studying how electrical fields in implants can help repair damaged nerves. Effective nerve stimulation is important for helping conditions like sciatica. The technology was invented by Professor Antonio Lauto from UWS, Sydney. The implants are placed under the skin near the damaged nerve and are powered wirelessly. The team used Computational Electromagnetic techniques in a mouse model to study the effect of the implant circuitry. Luke Smith, a leading author in the research, found that the metallic circuitry in the patch can speed up the repair process of damaged nerves. Nerve damage can take a long time to repair, and sufferers may need opioids for pain relief, which has risks. The research could benefit people with injuries and neurodegenerative diseases.
