Our story

How it all began

Our story truly began when Prof. Maoz and Dr. Arami (or Ben and Amir, as we prefer to call them) met.
Having grown up in different parts of the country, life had led them on different paths.
Ben became a faculty member at the Department of Bio-Medical Engineering at Tel Aviv University, while Amir grew to become a doctor and the chair of the hand surgery department at Sheba Medical Center.

Eventually, their paths crossed.
 Not only were their kids in the same circles, they found that they were neighbors.
They bonded over their interest in science, fondness for sports, and life-long dedication to helping others.
A friendship was soon formed.

One day, as they were on one of their habitual jogs, Amir confided in his friend about something that had been troubling him. When caring for patients who suffered from a nerve injury, there was very little he could offer them. The current surgical solutions depend on the injury’s extent and are limited in time following the injury. Even in cases where motion is restored, sensation is typically lost. This inability to help was a source of great frustration for Amir, who told Ben he wished there was something he could do to help such people.
Ben simply responded: “Challenge accepted!” and our journey began…

THE NEED

Losing touch

Impairment

Loss of tactile sensation is a common phenomenon in patients with traumatic peripheral nerve injury or a chronic disease.

Limitation

The loss of sensation involves a significant functioned limitation and the risk of injuries.

Constraints

The conventional surgical procedures are time restricted and success rates are limited.

THE SOLUTION

Innovative sensation restoration technology

At TENGABLE, we develop a man-machine-interface based solution; a self-powered triboelectric nano generator (TENG), that is implanted under the skin and transforms mechanical load into electricity. The nanogenerator is connected to the nearest healthy sensory nerve and stimulates it to restore touch sensation in the patient.
