Title: SYSTEM FOR OPTOGENETIC THERAPY
Abstract:
One embodment is directed to a probe for illuminating a target tissue of a patient, comprising: a plurality of optical fibers; a probe body portion having proximal and distal ends, the probe body portion being moveably coupled to the plurality of fibers and configured to at least partially encapsulate the plurality of fibers; a distal end portion coupled to the distal end of the probe body portion, the distal end portion comprising at least one guiding feature configured to redirect a path of at least one of the optical fibers comprising the plurality of optical fibers as such at least portion of one of the optical fibers is extended through and past the distal end portion by moving the plurality of fibers relative to the probe body portion. The probe further may comprise an ejector portion configured to move the plurality of fibers relative to the probe body portion.
