Flexible Body-Conformal Ultrasound Patches for Image-Guided Neuromodulation

logo case western reserve universityAn engineering team from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland recently designed and validated a new type of flexible ultrasound transducer. Their small- and large-sized body-conforming ultrasound patches contain both imaging and modulation elements. The patches are designed for use in preclinical models with image-guided neural therapies at a focal depth of 10 to 20 mm. Possible applications include neuromodulation of the vagus, tibial, or other nerves. See IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control >
