The Bionics Institute is an independent medical research institute undertaking world-class medical bionics research, focussed particularly on neural prostheses.
Medical bionics devices offer solutions to debilitating conditions where other treatments have not been successful.
They can replace impaired senses such as hearing or vision and treat neurological and psychiatric disorders including;
- Parkinson's Disease
- essential tremor
- severe depression
- obsessive compulsive disorder
Effectively sharing information across projects is at the core of our approach, in spite of the diversity of these disorders.
- establishing a framework where knowledge and technology are transferred from one project to another
- strengthening our collaborations with key clinical and engineering partners
We believe this approach is unique in the field and will play an important role in growing the Institute.
We are leaders in medical bionics research, focussed on tangible outcomes for the hundreds of thousands of current device users, and the ever increasing number of potential recipients, worldwide.

Formerly the Bionic Ear Institute, in June 2011 we became the Bionics Institute to fully reflect the range of our medical bionics research.
