    Wrap-Around Wearable Coils for Seamless Monitoring of Joint Flexion

    Monitoring human motion outside lab environments can revolutionize various sectors ranging from healthcare to virtual reality and from sports to biomedical research. Unfortunately, state-of-the-art approaches suffer from limitations which do not allow seamless, real-time and reliable motion monitoring in real-world settings. The idea presented in this article overcomes such drawbacks by using wirelessly coupled wrap-around coils that are seamlessly integrated in clothes. This idea envisions to redefine the way joint flexion is monitored at present and promises transformative opportunities for rehabilitation, sports, gestural interaction, and beyond.

  • A Review of In-Body Biotelemetry Devices: Implantables, Ingestibles, and Injectables
    A Review of In-Body Biotelemetry Devices: Implantables, Ingestibles, and Injectables

    A holistic and comparative review is conducted that focuses on three types of in-body devices used to realize many and different sensing and/or stimulating functionalities: implantable, ingestible, and injectable. Design considerations, current status and future directions related to the aforementioned devices are discussed. As technology continues to evolve, several new and hitherto unexplored opportunities are brought forward for in-body devices, promising a shift from today’s symptom-based medicine to a proactive healthcare model.

  • A Wireless Fully-Passive Neural Recording Device for Unobtrusive Neuropotential Monitoring

    Brain implant technology has a strong potential to improve the individual’s well-being. However, current brain implants lack the safety and reliability required for unobtrusive, long-term monitoring of neuropotentials. In this work, we propose a novel technology for safe and reliable neuropotential recorders…
