Wireless Microenergy Platform: Pushing Implantable Remote Stimulation to the µl (Micro-Liter) Level

This presentation will first sketch the big picture of implantable medical stimulators. With the wireless power transfer perspective, it will describe the challenges and the large opportunities offered by µl-sized devices. The focus will then be given to the innovative techniques in electromagnetic field engineering recently developed to avoid electric field penetrating the tissues, and enable various benefits from lower RX size to hybridation of coils and stimulation electrodes towards implantability, durability, efficiency and affordability of the systems.
