Antennas for ingestible capsule telemetry

Abstract : The electronic implants for biomedical applications came out in mid-50s with the invention of the first pacemakers. This healthcare innovation exposed the potential and revealed the vast opportunities in the field of implantable electronic devices, enabling new ways of diagnostics and treatments maintaining the patient mobility. So, the idea of wireless telemetry was born: it permits to efficiently prevent, monitor and treat a disease timely. In this chapter, we provide an overview of ingestible capsule wireless telemetry with the main focus on specific challenges and difficulties associated to the design of ingestible GI capsule antenna systems. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2016.
