Smart, Dissolving Pacemaker Communicates with Body-Area Sensors

Smart, Dissolving Pacemaker Communicates with Body-Area Sensors

Last summer, Northwestern University researchers introduced the first-ever transient pacemaker — a fully implantable, wireless device that harmlessly dissolves in the body after it's no longer needed. Now, they unveil a new, smart version that is integrated into a coordinated network of soft, flexible, wireless, wearable sensors and control units placed around the upper body.

Charging Underwater, Body-Implanted Electronics With Ultrasonic Waves

Charging Underwater, Body-Implanted Electronics With Ultrasonic Waves

As the population ages and with the advancements in medical technology, the number of patients using implanted electronic devices, such as artificial pacemakers and defibrillators, is increasing worldwide. Currently, the batteries of body-implanted devices are replaced by an incision surgery, which may lead to health complications. Accordingly, a new charging technique by wireless energy transfer is emerging that can also be used to charge the batteries of underwater devices, such as sensors, that are used for monitoring the conditions of submarine cables.
