From PDG Lou Scholten

"Most of you would have heard me speaking at your Club

about the 'Bionic Institute' to raise funds. We have

received a number of donations, and I would like to thank

you for this. However I would like to ask you if your

Club has not done so to date, could you please consider".

The Bionics Institute is an independent, not-for-profit

research organisation working in the field of medical

bionics. Medical bionics devices are precisely engineered to

work with the human body and offer solutions to

debilitating conditions where other treatments are either unavailable or have been


Formerly the Bionic Ear Institute, in June 2011 it became the Bionics Institute to

reflect fully the range of medical bionics research. The three major research

programmes are:

·  Bionic Hearing: This research programme aims to improve the performance of

 the cochlear implant and hearing aids, and to enable their application to many

 more adults and children with hearing impairments. Specific projects include:

 sound processing research to enhance the perception of music and speech;

 the development of techniques to prevent the degeneration of the hearing

 nerve following deafness; and investigations of how the brain responds

 to long-term artificial stimulation.

·   Bionic Vision: As part of the Bionic Vision Australia consortium, we are

  developing a retinal implant capable of restoring limited vision to people

  suffering from eye diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa. We are using

 our engineering expertise and experience in safety and biocompatibility studies

 to establish safe surgical procedures and effective electrical stimulation

 strategies for the prototype bionic eye.

·  Neurobionics: This research programme aims to develop and evaluate new

 implantable devices to safely and effectively treat people who have severe

 neurological or psychiatric conditions that have not responded to other treatments.

 Our aim is create a flexible medical bionics platform that can be tailored to suit

 a range of conditions including epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and

 obsessive-compulsive disorder.

CIKA Coach Drive

The CIKA Coach Drive is a fun and adventurous project to raise

vital funds to help in the quest for a cure for childhood cancer.

The original vintage coach pulled by several beautiful draught horses, will be

a sight to behold. Departing from Port Fairy on 10 April 2013, the CIKA Coach

Drive will be to raise $50,000 to purchase a Leica Microscope, a much-needed

piece of state of the art equipment that will enable researchers at Murdoch

Children's Research Institute, research partner of the Royal Children's Hospital,

to analyse solid tumours at a much more advanced level.

With your help, CIKA will be able to achieve this remarkable goal, which will

truly make a difference in the research that is needed to find a cure of childhood


This coach drive is supported by the Lions Club of Macarthur and District

which some of their members will be travelling with the coach.
