Smart Medical Device with Electrochemical Monitoring and Control of Medical Implants

Jeremy Gilbert (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

An external or implantable system for measuring for measuring electrical factors, such as voltage, current, and impedance, to assess the behavior of metallic biomaterials surfaces and to determine the corrosion-based activity of the surfaces while placed in their normal location within the human body. The system includes electrodes for interrogating the medical implant and electronics for monitoring the implant and controlling the electrodes, as well as a power source and communication module.
