Case Western Reserve University presents revolutionary developments in using implantable diamond-coated devices at MEDCon, May 16-18th at Navy Pier in Chicago, IL

Case Western Reserve University is leading a study to engineer revolutionary implantable diamond-coated devices, designed to last a lifetime.  These implants, made from diamond and flexible polymer, are designed to identify chemical and electrical changes in the brain of patients suffering from neural disease, or to stimulate nerves and restore movement in the paralyzed.

Medical Electronic Device Conference & Expo (MEDCon) announces that one lead researcher on this project, Christian Zorman, Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Case Western, will present his teams findings and developments at the conference & expo being held May 16-18, 2011 in Chicago, IL.

As the one-stop resource for all engineering and design needs, MEDCon presents component innovations and product solutions that R&D, engineers and designers need in order to build the next generation of electronic medical devices.

Free expo passes and discounted conference pricing is available for qualifying medical device manufacturers at
