The pacemaker is about to get a whole lot smaller
A team of engineers out of Stanford is introducing a truly tiny wireless cardiac device to demonstrate that, thanks to a little ingenuity and impressive math, all medical implants may soon be powered wirelessly.
Ada Poon led the research.
Which means that devices such as pacemakers, which owe the majority of their bulk to the battery, are about to get a whole lot smaller.
Head researcher Ada Poon, who earlier this year showed off a proof-of-concept, wirelessly powered device small enough to propel itself through the bloodstream, says the main achievement with the cardiac…
