Body Antenna—What Could Go Wrong?

Feds Help Finance Creation of Implantable Body Antenna for ‘Long-term Patient Monitoring’

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is helping fund the creation of an implantable antenna for health care.

The government has so far given $5,070 for a graduate fellowship to work on the project, which begins June 1.

The project is being financed in collaboration with the National Research Foundation of Korea to create a high frequency antenna that can be permanently implanted under a person’s skin.

“Antennas operating near or inside the human body are important for a number of applications, including healthcare,” a grant for the project said. “Implantable medical devices such as cardiac pacemakers and retinal implants are a growing feature of modern healthcare, and implantable antennas for these devices are necessary to monitor battery level and device health, to upload and download data used in patient monitoring, and more.”

The device is being constructed in Korea—partly funded by the US.
