How it works

The SonoShield Defender was designed as a preclinical system to improve implanted electrode longevity for chronic use by delivering a focused acoustic field that produces a neuro-protective environment around implanted electrodes. The SonoShield Defender treatment improves electrode performance (signal-to-noise, singleunit detection) and impacts microglia motility in the days following electrode implantation.
