The SonoCloud® Device
The SonoCloud® is an implantable medical device, which is fixed to the skull. Since the device must be MRI compatible, the device does not contain any integrated power source. The upper face, which is in contact with the underside of the skin, contains a connection channel that receives a bipolar needle which is introduced through the skin at each use. The bottom face, which is in contact with the dura mater and brain, consists of a transducer that emits ultrasound energy to open the blood-brain barrier.
The SonoCloud® device is powered and controlled by an external generator that verifies the quality of the electrical connection, delivers radio-frequency energy to power the device, and saves the entire procedure sequence.
