Novel device developed by Hong Kong researchers could help patients with spinal injuries avoid invasive surgeries

  • The new neurostimulator, developed by researchers at Polytechnic University, is small enough to be injected into a patient’s spine via a needle
  • It is also powered by ultrasonic waves instead of conventional batteries, obviating the need for future surgeries to replace them
