“Providing Senator Madigan with first-hand insight into our hearing, vision and neurobionics work allows us to demonstrate the uniqueness of the Institute’s research and practical outcomes”, said Professor Rob Shepherd, Bionics Institute Director.

During his visit, the Senator had the opportunity to meet with a bionic eye recipient, see how experimental electrodes for Parkinson’s disease devices are made, and discuss our future plans for a range of devices and how the Institute would like to trial and commercialise them in Australia.
