Traditional electrodes that interface with the human body are hard and rigid. However, the human body is soft and round, and the mismatch in mechanical properties between the electrodes and the human body causes a rejection of the electrode which limits its useful lifetime. Furthermore, the electrodes can damage the tissue in our body, or be damaged by it. In short, hard and stiff materials are not suitable to interact with our body. The mission of BMSEED is to eliminate the poor clinical outcomes associated with hard and stiff electrodes interacting with our body by designing electrodes that have mechanical properties that are similar to the human body. This is particularly important in mechanically active (e.g., near the heart, spinal cord) and very soft (e.g., the brain) environment.
