We humans are totally immersed in Internet. It’s been decades that we are totally becoming dependent on Internet or Internet of Things (IoT). Smartphone in your hand is not the only device which operates on the internet, there are many other advanced devices joining in and wireless Implantable Medical Devices (IMD) are one of them.
Technology go hand-in-hand with healthcare
Technology is being used in healthcare in most innovative way and helping medical professionals across the globe in gathering data from within the human body. IMDs, also called implantables, collect data from human body. The data is gathered either temporarily or for a longer term. The temporary data might be as smart pills or for longer term as surgically installed device. The implantables may be either internal or embedded. Cochlear implants, pacemakers, smart pills are all internal. Embedded implants have hardwired connection, wherein the human body has a real time connection to some remote machine having live updates.
Considering faster Internet speed with the existence of new 5G, it is not difficult to connect our cellphone to Internet of Bodies. Speed is no more a challenge. Remote monitoring of those suffering from chronic diseases is possible with the Internet of Bodies connectedness.
In order to make the entire system secure, timely updates are issued by manufacturers. Connected bodies are kept a step ahead with all the latest updates.
