AirRay Electrode Technology

CorTec’s °AirRay electrodes are made from very soft silicone using a high-precision laser manufacturing process. They offer an unprecedented combination of flexibility, softness, stretchability, thinness and density of contacts.

The °AirRay Technology allows electrode customization to fit your specific application:

    • Number of contacts & contact density
    • Grid, Strip, Paddle or Percutaneous electrodes
    • Mechanical properties
    • Contact materials

Our Cuff Electrodes offer a wide spectrum of closing mechanisms and sizes to design specific electrodes for your application.

Sling or Tunnel Cuff Electrodes are ideal for small nerves in animal research. The larger designs such as the Spiral and Helix Cuff electrodes are ideal for chronic applications in pre-clinical and clinical settings for human application.

Cuff electrodes are electrical interfaces to the peripheral nervous system. CorTec offers design families for individual applications, which strongly depend on the implantation site (e.g. nerve size) and character of the interface:

    • Neural signal recording
    • Electrical stimulation of nerves
    • Blocking of propagation of neural signals


The cuffs are built from soft silicone to minimize the risk of mechanical nerve irritation. CorTec‘s micro-machining technology permits the electrical contacts to be produced as very flexible micro meanders. At the same time they prevent the effect of plastic deformation of the cuffs during handling. Of course, we also offer custom-tailored designs to meet your specific requirements, e.g. high-channel versions.
