From the bionic ear to a bionic era the Bionics Institute is leading the way in delivering health solutions to otherwise intractable conditions that affect thousands. A long and successful record in the development of the bionic ear, major achievements in the pursuit of a bionic eye and an expansion into neurological and psychiatric disorders sees the Institute at the forefront of medical bionic device research internationally. 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; - epilepsy - Parkinson's Disease - dystonia - 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. We believe this approach is unique in the field and will play an important role in growing the Institute.
