Project of the month - MIKROAUG

In collaboration with several industrial partners and doctors Fraunhofer EMFT develops an active implant system based on microsystems technology that will allow new therapies to combat eye disorders such as glaucoma and ophthalmophthisis. The central component is a micromembrane pump that pumps out eye fluid, toning the eye. This enables permanent regulation of intraocular pressure. The aim is to prevent imminent blinding, or at least significantly delay it.
