Intelligent Telemetry for Implants

iOS/ Intelligent Implants for Osteosynthesis is a cooperative project supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) . livetec is one of the winners of the Innovation Competition 2007 for the promotion of medical technology.

iOS/ aim is the design and prototypical implementation of a wireless sensor system as an add-on for established implants used in fracture treatment to monitor and optimize the healing process by means of noninvasive stiffness measurements. The system consists of autonomous sensor modules for load measurements on the implant as well as a portable reader.
