Electrostimulation instead of medication: Magnetoceuticals – Approach to electromagnetic stimulation of nervous tissue

Today, a large number of diseases are treated with medication. This is often associated with side effects that can be serious for people who are already ill. A new therapeutic approach, known under the keyword „bioelectronic medicine“, provides for the therapy of diseases by means of electrostimulation. Since April 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT has been contributing its many years of expertise in the field of intelligent miniaturized active implants to the BMBF joint project „Magnetoceuticals“ to develop a novel electrostimulation system for nerve tissue.
