Designing Ultrasonic Implantable Devices based on the Internet of Medical Things Platform
ECE Professor Tommaso Melodia was awarded a patent for designing a “Software-defined implantable ultrasonic device for use in the internet of medical things.”
Abstract Source: USPTO
Implantable and wearable devices and system for transmitting signals ultrasonically through biological tissue are implemented based on an Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) platform software and hardware architecture. The devices are size-, energy-, and resource-constrained and implement ultrasonic communication protocols and communicate with each other through ultrasound.
