The engineers from Stanford University (USA) presented a model of a new cardiostimulator that can get energy without wires. The implant is the size of a pinhead and can be recharged from radio waves transmitted from the outside.
It was previously thought that the devices were not able to get energy from radio waves, being immersed inside the human body. However, the device developed by the experts from Stanford can perform this, even being at a depth of 5 centimeters in the heart patient’s chest.
So far, there is only a prototype, but its creators believe that the new generation of wireless cardiostimulators will soon be released. This invention will facilitate the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
