Bioelectronic medicine is a vision far from today’s medical practice. But we believe that one day, tiny devices, smaller than grains of rice, could be used to restore health in a range of chronic diseases centred on organs and biological functions.


Turbocharging the effect of vaccines

Since the beginning of civilisation, trees and plants have been the source of many medicinal remedies, preparations and potions. Aspirin from willow, analgesics from poppies, even chemotherapies from yew and periwinkle.
