RF Channel Modeling for Implant-to-Implant Communication and Implant to Sub-Cutaneous Implant Communication for Future Leadless Cardiac Pacemakers
The study proposes the radio-frequency channel modeling for in-body to in-body implant communication for next generation multinodal capsule-like leadless cardiac pacemaker technology. The method is based on detailed numerical simulations of complex digital human models. The research also investigates the placement of a subcutaneous implant transceiver and channel behaviour based on ventricular blood volume change to find out the appropriate timing of the signal transmission between the implants. The overall study would facilitate the design of the world’s first complete prototype of the multi-node leadless capsule pacemaker technology in the future.
