Implantable Pacemaker

It comes as no doubt that implantable have significantly affected the world of modern medicine, specifically, implantable pacemaker. It has saved several lives by controlling rhythm of the heart. Even though they save lives, there’s one disadvantage to it, batteries only function for five to twelve years. When the batteries run out, implantable pacemaker needs to be replaced via an operation. As per a report released in ACS Nano, researchers

Pacemaker

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley developed a novel neurostimulator that can listen to and stimulate electric current simultaneously in the brain, potential for delivering effective treatments to patients with diseases such as Parkinson’s and epilepsy. The new wireless pacemaker device called ‘WAND’ functions like a pacemaker for the brain that monitors electrical activity of the brain as well as deliver electric stimulation when detecting something amiss.
