Mobile technologies have changed our life style significantly. Personalised tools such as wearable and implantable devices through wireless communication and Internet of Things have been utilised in healthcare to provide unique functions and reduce costs. Individuals can be empowered with tailored solutions without limitation in mobility or daily activities. Quantitative documentation of physiological parameters presents more accurate assessment. Direct stimulation on tissues or organs by electrical signals can restore or improve body functions. Continuous monitoring and adaptive administration of therapy to treat symptoms via wireless body networking can adaptively optimise the closed-loop health management.
This presentation discusses the development of wireless micro devices and integrated systems for clinical applications. The systems are based on battery-less, wireless implants with enhancement in miniaturisation and functionalisation. Miniaturisation owing to flexible substrates and the elimination of bulky batteries allows endoscopic or minimally invasive procedures to deploy the implants without painful surgeries. Several diagnosis and therapeutic treatment examples for management of gastric and neural disorders, particularly as closed-loop systems, will be introduced. These examples aim to inspire new system application ideas to address the implementation and cost challenges in healthcare, and enable integration of electronics and medicines to improve human welfare and assist better living.
Access to the building: The building will be closed around 17:30 and during 17:30-17:45, a door from Whitworth street to the building is manned to those who arrive late for the seminar.
