In-line lead connector for use with implanted neuroprosthesis

IEEE Trans Biomed Eng. 1991 Jul;38(7):707-9. doi: 10.1109/10.83572.


The design, implementation, and preliminary testing of an implantable in-line connector for individual lead-wires is presented. The connector provides for replacement of implanted components without disturbing other elements of the implanted system. Its flexibility and size makes it suitable for implantation in neuromuscular applications.
