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.
