Interactive implants

Dear Sir or Madam,

Microelectronic medical implants are becoming increasingly important in various areas. In the application field of active implants, the focus is on the impulses that are delivered to the wearer's heart, hearing or electronic prosthesis. At the Fraunhofer IBMT, research is currently being conducted into how these implants can become even smaller and perhaps even be controlled from outside the body. In our video: Networks of interactive implants, Roman Ruff tells us more.

PS: Michael Klenk told us in an interview how Marposs GmbH experienced COMPAMED 2021 and what was missing without presence fairs.

Have a nice day!

Atom by atom: building precise smaller nanoparticles with templates

Materials Science

Recently, quasi-sub-nanomaterials attracted attention because they have a dual nature – they can be regarded as nanoparticles, as well as inorganic molecules. However, synthesizing such precise molecular structures is technically challenging – but scientists at Tokyo Tech were certainly up for this challenge.

Networks of interactive implants: Developments in communication and energy transmission

Active implants can be used to monitor various bodily functions. They can also send impulses to the heart, hearing or electrical prostheses. At the same time, they are becoming smaller and smaller - and, if possible, will soon be supplied with energy from outside the body.

Bionics looks to nature's principles and translates them into technical applications. Easier said than done. After all, where can you find the right ideas to emulate nature and apply biological methods and systems? And once they find them, how do modern companies incorporate them in their development process to create a successful product?
