IMI Intelligent Medical Implants Company Profile

15:46 EST 24th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

IMI's IRIS comprises three integral parts to approximate the information processing normally carried out by the healthy retina. This includes 1) a "Retinal Stimulator" that is implanted on the patient's retina; 2) a pair of spectacles ("Visual Interface") containing an integrated mini-camera and transmitter components for wireless signal and energy transmission to the Retina Stimulator; and 3) a high-speed microprocessor ("Pocket Processor") worn at the waist that contains tunable software to provide intelligently processed (or coded) visual information to the implant and optic nerve cells, which the brain learns to interpret and translate into functional sight. Proprietary algorithms enhance the systems performance. For example, a unique attribute is the system's use of patient feedback on perception as an input for tuning the Pocket Processor. This process has shown great promise in expediting and optimizing visual perception as the patient learns to see again. Another benefit over other implantable devices is that the IMI Retinal Stimulator can be easily upgraded with a next-generation device as sensor technology advances: the detachable IMI unit clips onto a special tack that is implanted in the back of the eye, expediting device removal and replacement.
