The ARTORG Center congratulates Philipp Aebischer on his successful PhD thesis defense on 28 April 2022! He presented his project “SMART Insertions for Cochlear Implant Electrode Arrays: A Sleeve-based, Micromotion Avoiding, Retractable and Tear-opening Insertion Tool” conducted at the Hearing Research Lab (HRL). For his PhD, Philipp Aebischer has investigated the mechanics of cochlear implantation using human anatomy-based models of the scala tympani and developed a new insertion tool that allows to redirect the implant’s electrode array onto an optimal trajectory.
