The Bionics Institute is bringing its expertise in bionic device design to a new collaborative project aimed at developing a novel treatment for severe stress urinary incontinence. Led by the University of Melbourne (A/Prof Brock), and including the Institute, Charles Sturt University and Neosphincter Technologies Pty Ltd, this project was recently funded by the Australian Research Council and will develop a novel electrode  as an integral component of a device that can regulate the bladder.

This research project represents an exciting expansion of our capabilities and collaborative networks, and an opportunity to apply our skills to a new area of clinical need.
