IEEE SA Presents:

Use Cases and Technical Considerations for In-Body Wireless Medical Devices

Wireless medical devices (“wearables”) applied on us, in us and around us present great opportunities for clinical research, early prediction of disease, care delivery, and healthcare management. In-body medical devices may be injected, implanted, or ingested and, when paired with complementary medical devices, may support remote patient monitoring, therapy delivery, or diagnostic purposes. Each of these use cases follows a different technical architecture as it relates to communication channel, power source, device encryption, and overall security.

Date:
16-17 March 2020

Venue:
Hunts Library, NSCU
Raleigh, NC

This workshop will present the following learning opportunities:

  1. Addressing the technical challenges with in-body wireless devices as it relates to communication channel disruption in different environments
  2. Understanding the different security vulnerabilities associated with the various communication channels and with the device
  3. Technical challenges as it relates to device sustainability in terms of power and in-body durability
  4. Providing technical insight on how to best evaluate the appropriate in-body and wearable devices for your use case

A workshop designed to deliver outcomes

Contribute to solutions with real-time evaluation and analysis in a wearables’ development lab in Raleigh, NC. The workshop is designed to bring awareness of technical challenges that may be addressed both via standards development and within an in-situ development lab. The development lab in collaboration with the ASSIST Center and harmonizing outcomes through the IEEE Global WAMIII Platform Development Lab.

Call for participation
