Abstract

See full text

A connector assembly and method for electrically connecting an implantable electrode having an electrical lead array to monitoring equipment. The connector assembly includes a lead holder, an electrical conductor array, and a base holding the electrical conductor array, and a resilient element. The lead holder is moveable with respect to the base from a first position to an operating position. The resilient element is adapted to bias the lead holder from the first position to the operating position.
