Abstract

Over the past six decades there has been tremendous progress made in the field of medical implant communications. A comprehensive review of the progress, current state-of-the-art and future direction is presented in this chapter. Implanted Medical Devices (IMDs) are designed mainly for the purpose of diagnostic, therapeutic and assitive applications in heathcare, active living and sports technology. The primary target of implanted medical devices (IMDs) design revolve around reliable communications, sustainable power sources, high degree of miniaturisation while maintaining bio-compatibility to surrounding tissues adhering to the human safety limits set by appropriate guidelines. The role of internet of things (IoT) and intelligent data analysis in implant device networks as future research is presented. Lastly, in addition to reviewing the state-of-the art, a novel intuitive lower bound on implant size is presented.
