Basic structure of ultrasound power supply and communication

Unlike drugs, active implants such as electroceuticals act locally, have fewer side effects and function directly through electrical signals, much like the body itself. At the Medica 2016 trade fair in Düsseldorf, Fraunhofer researchers will be presenting a new technology platform that can power active implants wirelessly via ultrasound (Hall 10, Booth G05). The experts are targeting widespread diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and Parkinson's.
