One example of this is intelligent medical products made from medical silicone, which insulates electronic components and can also be used as an electrically conductive component.
How does this work?
Electrical currents are conducted through the combination of silicone and conductive fillers. This allows specific areas of the body to be stimulated in a targeted manner. Areas of application include neurostimulation for pain treatment or the targeted training of muscle groups.
Silicone also insulates the electronic components and sensors of medical products, protecting them from dirt, water and sweat. As a result, the devices function reliably and for a long time.
