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…
