Sophono's Alpha 1 hearing device system is comprised of a bone-anchored magnetic implant placed under the skin behind the ear, and an external audio processor that produces vibrations that travel through the skin and skull to the cochlea, enabling the wearer to hear.
Researchers at University College London, Moorfields Eye Hospital, and the University of Oxford are developing magnetic implants to treat patients with nystagmus.
There are reports on using magnetic implants within a target zone in blood vessels as an alternate way to increase magnetic drug targeting strength in deep tissues [19].
Among the topics are a single-molecule barcoding system using nanoslits for DNA analysis called nanocoding, inserting and manipulating DNA in a nanopore with optical tweezers, analyzing biomolecules using surface plasmons, small-angle scattering and neutron contrast variation for studying biomolecular complexes, imaging quantum dots in vivo, the monitoring and affinity purification of proteins using dual tags with tetracysteine motifs, magnetic nanoparticles for local drug delivery using magnetic implants, and custom-designed molecular scissors for site-specific manipulation of the plant and mammalian genomes.
Half-inch cubic particles fabricated from rigid poly-methylpentene were assembled with cylindrical magnetic implants, bio-loads of B.
Sensor arrays detected and recorded the passage of the particles containing individual cylindrical magnetic implants of 0.1 gram within stainless steel tubes of diameters ranging from 1.5 inches to 3 inches, with a flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute.
In a retrospective study, Drago in 1991 (9) reported that the edges of all magnetic implants used in various clinical prosthodontic procedures showed evidence of tarnish and somewhat corroded, thus significantly affecting the useful lifespan of intraoral magnets.
Magnetic implants now track individual animals as they walk past sensors into stalls while automatic feeders record feed levels and other sensors keep track of each cow's production level.
Researchers at University College London and the University of Oxford developed a set of magnetic implants to treat nystagmus in a patient who developed the condition in his late 40s.
