Pulse Technologies (Quakertown, Pa.) used this week’s MD&M Minneapolis to show off its new hierarchical surface restructuring (HSR) tech, promoting its ability to modify the surface of implantable electrodes and microelectrode arrays.

Pulse Technologies officials think the offering could boost innovation in the neuromodulation and cardiac rhythm management space — as well as other medtech applications.

The tunable process uses ultrashort pulse lasers to engineer the surface of an electrode versus using specialized coatings.

HSR, according to Pulse Technologies, can enable smaller electrodes with enhanced electrochemical performance, durability, sensitivity and resolution.
