The WISE Company
WISE S.r.l. (Wiringless Implantable Stretchable Electronics) has the mission to develop and market the new generation of electrodes for neuromodulation for the treatment of neurologic diseases.
The electrodes are produced through a proprietary innovative technology, namely the Supersonic Cluster Beam Implantation (SCBI), which allows the metallization of stretchable polymers. The obtained electrodes are highly biocompatible, unbreakable, minimally invasive and cheaper than existing products.
SCBI consists in embedding metal nanoparticles inside a preformed elastomeric base in order to form a conductive metal-polymer skin on its surface. The electrodes obtained with this technique are strongly attached to the polymer, resist without electrical failure to extensive deformations of the polymer, such as bending and stretching, and have very good performances in terms of biocompatibility.
