A wireless system has been developed by Assistant Professor Ada Poon to charge safely tiny electronical medical devices in our body (in our livers, in our heart, and even in our brain). People only need a device the size of a credit card placed outside the body. This technique is called mid-field wireless transfer.
With this method it’s possible to transmit power to tiny implants in organs well beyond the range of current near-field systems. Because of this, they are trying to make these devices as small as possible so they can put it as deep as they can in the body, to treat illness and alleviate pain. This discover has made possible the implant of electroceutical device, wich use electrical stimulation to treat illness or alleviate pain, wich would take a lot of hours of treatments.
This method has only been tested in animals, it wasn’t tested in humans yet.
Between the source and the original source there are some differences. In the original, there aren’t opinions, but in the source where I read it yes (everything that is between quote marks). In the original they explain it in a more scientifical way, using many technical terms, and focusing on how it was made. Basically, the source is just summarazing the original source to make it easy for people to understand it (without giving technical terms) and putting opinions of the people who made it.
In my opinion, this is a really good step for medicine, it can help a lot of people. But maybe it will end up causing a side-effects on people, so it should be tested many times before using it.
