Title: ACTIVE MAGNETIC PROSTHESIS FOR EYE-LID RE-ANIMATION
Abstract:
A device includes a frame, a rotatable housing and a permanent magnet. The frame is configured to be worn adjacent an eye region of a wearer. The rotatable housing is coupled to the frame. The permanent magnet is coupled to the rotatable housing and includes a first surface having a first static magnetic polarity and a second surface having a second static magnetic polarity opposite the first static magnetic polarity. The rotatable housing is arranged to rotate the permanent magnet between a first position orienting the first surface towards the eye region of the wearer and a second position orienting the second surface towards the eye region of the wearer. Related apparatus, systems, techniques and articles are also described.
