The Hearing aids have been a problem to many people who wish to enjoy the every moment of your life. However, the problem arises when you have to do peculiar activities like swimming. At that time you need to put them off. But now you have the fully-implantable hearing device developed by Otologics that features a capsule containing microphone. The capsule is implanted in the skin behind the ear. Sound is recieved by the microphone and after processing sent to the transducer placed in the middle ear which moves the middle ear bones to respond to the sound. The charging concept is unique. Place he charger on the place of the implanted device and the charging will be done. That’s cool. Moreover, a remote control can turn it off or on and control the volume level too.

If the research carried out by the experts at the University of Washington to develop a brain implant chip gets completed successfully, it could be of great help to the patients suffering from brain injuries, stroke or paralysis as the electronic implantable chip will set up new nerve connections in the part of brain (motor cortex) that directs the movement. All the research findings will be published under the title of ‘Long-Term Motor Cortex Plasticity Induced by an Electronic Neural Implant’. The new brain implant chip will be a helping hand in the rehabilitation of the patients with brain injuries and paralysis.
