    Name: IEEE SA Use Cases and Technical Considerations for In-Body Wireless Medical Devices
    Date: January 28, 2021 - January 29, 2021
    Event Description:

    Wireless medical devices (“wearables”) applied on us, in us and around us present great opportunities for clinical research, early prediction of disease, care delivery, and healthcare management. In-body medical devices may be injected, implanted, or ingested and, when paired with complementary medical devices, may support remote patient monitoring, therapy delivery, or diagnostic purposes. Each of these use cases follows a different technical architecture as it relates to communication channel, power source, device encryption, and overall security. This workshop will present the following learning opportunities: 1. Addressing the technical challenges with in-body wireless devices as it relates to communication channel disruption in different environments 2. Understanding the different security vulnerabilities associated with the various communication channels and with the device 3. Technical challenges as it relates to device sustainability in terms of power and in-body durability
    4. Providing technical insight on how to best evaluate the appropriate in-body and wearable devices for your use case
