The CEO of a technological hub says the microchip implants make life easier for workers.
A team from Stanford University created a small pacemaker that can be charged wirelessly.
The wireless pacemaker was just approved within the European Union.
Currently, patients need to undergo repeated surgeries in order to replace batteries in pacemakers. However, a new device tested recently, can convert energy from a beating heart to provide enough electricity to power a pacemaker, the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2012 heard. Indeed, tests suggest that the device can produce 10 times more energy than required. This device is a huge discovery since patients wearing pacemakers, with the help of this device, would be able to eliminate the need for replacements when batteries are spent.
