Title: IMPLANTABLE CUFF ELECTRODE
Abstract:
The invention relates to an implantable cuff electrode, having a flexible cuff in the form of a tube with a longitudinal slot, the longitudinal slot defining a first edge and a second edge on the cuff. A first lip is arranged on the first edge of the longitudinal slot and a second lip is arranged on the second edge of the longitudinal slot. The longitudinal slot can be sealed by the first lip and the second lip by an at least partial overlap of the first lip and the second lip lying on the cuff outer surface of the cuff and the second lip holds the first lip in position by surface pressure on the cuff outer surface.
