Deep Brain Stimulation
Movement & Psychiatric disorders
Bionic Enterprises aims to develop advanced DBS systems for intractable movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, Essential Tremor and certain psychiatric disorders, such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). These devices will offer technical, clinical and cost advantages over existing devices.
The application of DBS to treat certain psychiatric disorders is rapidly expanding. OCD, for example, is currently poorly treated with conventional therapies. Bionic Enterprises will develop a device for these patients with stimulation parameters and other features superior to currently available devices.
