Facial Paralysis

Facial paralysis impacts over 1,000,000 people world wide each year, due to Bell’s palsy, brain surgery, stroke, Parkinson’s and other diseases. Eye closure is generally regarded as the top functional priority restoration in patients experiencing facial paralysis. The absence of blinking can lead to extremely painful corneal ulceration and severe dry eye, either can cause visual impairment or irreversible visual loss.

 

NeuroTrigger has developed and successfully tested the BlinkER device - the world’s first proprietary eyelid pacemaker that restores blinking. It is portable, aesthetic, user-friendly and the only device that automatically stimulates artificial eyelid blinking in individuals with facial paralysis.
