Bioelectronic Medicine Outlook
Bioelectronic medicine uses the body's electrical signals to enhance disease diagnosis and treatment. We analyze how startups, researchers, and industry giants are moving the space forward with new tech and innovations.
Medical applications of bioelectronics have drastically expanded thanks to advances in electrical sensor design, biomaterial manufacturing, internet of things (IoT), and low-latency computing.
Bioelectronic medicine aims to interpret, interrupt, and redirect electrical signals within the body to improve disease diagnosis and treatment. This approach began with the invention of the cardiac pacemaker, but the industry has expanded to now include devices like cochlear implants to restore hearing, retinal implants to restore sight, spinal cord stimulators to relieve pain, and even bioelectronic bandages to heal wounds.
