Abstract:

Ripple is developing an implantable stimulator to restore functional eye blink in patients with unilateral facial nerve paralysis. The proposed blink prosthesis is intended for patients with facial nerve damage who suffer long-term disfigurement and dysfunction due to the loss of the ability to convey facial expression and produce eye blink.
