End of StimulAIS project

tipo de documento Oharra

After technological development stages, three main results have been successfully achieved and integrated in a working active implantable medical device, in accordance with EU directives, for performing customized treatment of AIS:

  • R1. Implantable device (with associated stimulation control software and charger)
  • R2. MIS instruments
  • R3. External console

 

R1. The implantable device is programmable (for sensing and stimulating) in order to provide a wide range of treatment protocols, while muscle selectivity will allow targeted stimulation to maximize treatment outcome. Moreover, the integrated stimulation control software (to modulate it into safety thresholds) implements an innovative technology with sensor (EMG) and motor function, which will allow real-time adaptation in order to maintain stimulation effectiveness and provide progressive correction of the pathology.

All these features are integrated in a small device with low obtrusiveness providing the advantages of fully implanted systems with a minimally invasive associated procedure.

R2. Specific surgical instruments were developed in order to implant the electro-stimulation device and for the connection of electrodes to the key muscles. The minimally invasive surgical technique was validated in-vitro with the developed instruments, and ensures a short hospital stay.

R3. The external console to program the subcutaneous device and to collect bioelectric data of the patient. It consists of a reader for wireless communication with the implanted device and a control software with an intuitive user interface. This will be handled by clinicians for programming the implantable device with the most appropriate stimulation protocol and follow-up treatment.

This way, most initial project aims have already been fulfilled, providing the consortium the valuable experience about the industrial and regulatory contexts of the final product, for its future commercial realization.

Prototypes were manufactured for being used in definitive animal experiments, according to the procedures authorized by the ethics committee. Animal experimentation allowed us to verify the functioning and operation of the integrated StimulAIS system. However, the animal experimentation has been troublingly tough. We could not see all envisaged results from the implanted devices to verify the full functionality of the device in-vivo (e.g. EMG measures for customized treatment), and some detected limitations have required complementary components development for being used with the animals, in order to get access to information or to improve in-situ usability.

 

Overall, the consortium’s aim for the next follow-on project is to produce a prototype validated industrially according to all the applying regulatory framework, for CE marking. Achieved in collaboration with specialized providers, this version of the product will participate in phase two and three clinical trials, in order to validate the device in humans. To achieve maximum impact, project promoter (Tequir) is leading the search for manufacturing and clinical partners who can upwardly scale production towards industrial volumes, and license StimulAIS technology – a prospect that is also an inviting business opportunity.

Further dissemination and exploitation activities are envisaged for consortium partners after project end, in order to facilitate and encourage the industrial and commercial exploitation of the results, while generating clinical evidence of StimulAIS system.

As part of the Dissemination Plan, Fraunhofer-IPMS has participated with a trade-show booth at MEDICA fair, celebrated in Dusseldorf (12-15 November 2014), for presentation of the StimulAIS active implantable device.

Dr. Eng. Andreas Heinig (from IPMS) has presented the StimulAIS active implantable device, and attended target stakeholders in the medical sector about its application and functionalities.

Furthermore, he has shown and delivered brochures with the StimulAIS dissemination article, published by the consortium (http://stimulais.com/comunidad/stimulaisproject/recurso/stimulais-dissemination-article-noninvasive-treatm/10f3b218-e252-42c8-91dc-34e776d5d114), in order to raise awareness and wider dissemination of project results.

StimulAIS consortium has participated in the development of dissemination activities (in the frame of the dissemination plan), in order to promote R&D achievements.

Result of this work is the attached article "Non-invasive treatment for spinal curvature in children", where, after providing a context of the AIS pathology, the updated project progress is exposed.

Several of the project’s initial aims have already been fulfilled, bringing StimulAIS’ novel
proposition significantly nearer to commercial realisation. Initial prototypes have been prepared for ethics committee authorisation of definitive animal experiments, which must
precede in vivo tests on humans and full rollout into the marketplace.

An overview of next follow-on project aims is provided in order to validate the full system in clinical trials and up-scale production towards industrialization.

 

StimulAIS project has been selected for a special edition publication due to its relevance in the healthcare sector, and it will be published together with other cutting edge technological projects in "Science, technology and innovation PROJECTS. Issue 37" (by INSIGHT Publishers).

 

The article can be downloaded by clicking in the title of this dissemination note.

In addition, a brochure with a StimulAIS special edition has been created, containing the above-mentioned article.

 

The brochure will be distributed in all congresses, fairs and events that are considered relevant. 250 copies of the brochure have been printed for this purpose.

SIX-MONTHS MEETING

tipo de documento Irudia

The Six-Months Meeting of the StimulAIS project took place last 16th April 2013 at Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS, in Dresden, Germany.

The results of the deliverables of the first work package were presented to the Consortium, and the members clarified some questions that are important for the next stages. The next technical steps of the project were established, and also this webpage was introduced to the partners.

At the moment, the Consortium has reached the main objectives of the project planned for this period, such as the study of software and hardware feasibility, or the definition of the main stimulation parameters that the system will require. The results obtained during this period have allowed the partners to start working in the next work packages, where the Consortium expects to obtain the first prototypes of the system.

In parallel, the whole Consortium is involved in the definition of the main risks to which the system has to deal with, taking into account European applicable standards.

Consortium members arranged next technical meetings that will take place by videoconference in the next months.This is a picture of the StimulAIS team members that attended this meeting.
