PRIMA Bionic Vision Restoration System


PRIMA is the sub-retinal VRS currently in pre-clinical phase.

PRIMA is validated in pre-clinical animal models:

• Proof of concept achieved in rats
• Safety demonstrated in rats and pigs
• Scale-up of manufacturing process ongoing
• First in man expected in 2016

The initial goal of PRIMA is to deliver improved visual perception potentially to the level of direct facial recognition.

PRIMA features:

• Physiological signal processing from sub-retinal level
• Simpler and shorter surgical procedure
• Micro-sized Retinal chips in modules of potentially up to several thousand electrodes
• Advanced stimulation algorithms
• Reduced energy requirements enabling miniaturization of components
