Topic:

Wireless Wearable and Implantable Biomedical Devices

Abstract: Wearable and implantable medical devices can enable new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Design and implementation of sensors and neural interfaces that are non-invasive or minimally invasive are essential for viability of such devices. In this talk we will focus on miniaturized devices that are wireless and highly energy-efficient. First an ultra-low-power sensor for continuous measurement of glucose and lactate will be presented. This minimally invasive wireless device can be injected just under the skin, and designed to have high dynamic range and high resolution. In the second example, we introduce a closed-loop neural interface for seizure detection and prevention. In this project, hardware efficient classification and feature extraction techniques are utilized to enhance the performance and energy-efficiency of the system.
