  • Intelligent Pillow Type Wireless Charger for Fully Implantable Middle Ear Hearing Device with a Function of Electromagnetic Emission Reduction

    Recently, implantable middle ear hearing devices have been developed as full implant by several countries for hearing impaired people. These devices will be surgically implanted in human temporal bone, a rechargeable battery is employed for long-term implant. To charge the battery, a pillow type wireless charger using electromagnetic coupling has been developed in South Korea. In the previous device, several primary coils are used, which can surround head considering head's movement in sleep. However, this device should unnecessarily consume power to drive the uncoupled primary coil. Especially, users must expose themselves to electromagnetic field generated from all primary coils during the charge process. In order to solve these problems, an intelligent pillow type wireless charger, which can recognize the implanted coilpsilas position using hall effect sensors and which can drive the only primary coil among primary coil's array, has been proposed to reduce potential risks from the electromagnetic field emission.

  • Active implantable medical device EMI assessments for electromagnetic emitters operating in various RF bands

Typical examples of interrogators operating in various RF bands are tested to estimate the EMI experienced by implantable- cardiac pacemakers and -cardioverter-defibrillators. The EMI occurrence mechanism and some experimental EMI evaluation results for typical devices are shown. Observed characteristics of the EMI are discussed based upon the transmission radio wave specifications. This discussion can give a good perspective on the same EMI issue raised by wireless power transmission systems.

  • Practical method to evaluate electromagnetic interference in active implantable medical devices

    It is known that some of external electromagnetic fields cause interference (EMI) to an active implantable medical device (AIMD) such as a cardiac pacemaker. Therefore it is important to establish a method to evaluate whether a particular electromagnetic environment would cause EMI to the AIMD or not. For this evaluation, the AIMD should be placed in a human body model, which is a kind of a saline tank. However, if the AIMD handles more than one chamber of the heart, signal leakage between the chambers comes up in the human body model. And it becomes difficult to monitor the output from only one chamber and to inject a simulated cardiac signal (EGM) only to the intended chamber. The author had worked out a new electrode that can reduce signal leakage of the output to less than 4%, and injected EGM leakage to less than 3%, whereas the output leakage is 44% and the EGM leakage is 71% by another commonly-used method.

  • Design and Development of Low-Loss Transformer for Powering Small Implantable Medical Devices

    Small implantable medical devices, such as wireless capsule endoscopes, that can be swallowed have previously been developed. However, these devices cannot continuously operate for more than 8 h because of battery limitations; moreover, additional functionalities cannot be introduced. This paper proposes a design method for a high-efficiency energy transmission transformer (ETT) that can transmit energy transcutaneously to small implantable medical devices using electromagnetic induction. First, the authors propose an unconventional design method to develop such a high-efficiency ETT. This method can be readily used to calculate the exact transmission efficiency for changes in the material and design parameters (i.e., the magnetic material, transmission frequency, load resistance, etc.). Next, the ac-to-ac energy transmission efficiency is calculated and compared with experimental measurements. Then, suitable conditions for practical transmission are identified. A maximum efficiency of 33.1% can be obtained at a transmission frequency of 500 kHz and a receiving power of 100 mW for a receiving coil size of ¿5 mm × 20 mm. Future design optimization is possible by using this method.

  • Bench testing and computer modeling of electromagnetic coupling for a hearing implantable device

    Middle ear implantable devices have become one of mayor research areas of biomedical engineering in Oklahoma. This paper describes some methods implemented in our research for testing/modeling the electromagnetic implantable hearing device which consists of an implant magnet (neodymium-iron boron magnet) and a coil. Bench testing was conducted on the device to determine the displacement or velocity of the implant magnet induced by electromagnetic coupling between the coil and magnet. Using a simplified vibration model, the force acting on the implant magnet was calculated. Next, a 2-dimensional (2-D) electromagnetic finite element model was created using the ANSYS software which involves the discretization and analysis of the electromagnetic field. Further work will be in combining the electromagnetic analysis and the middle ear structural mechanical modeling to predict functions of implantable devices for sound transmission.

  • A three-chamber heart simulator for the study of electromagnetic interference with implantable devices

The box is coupled to a laptop PC by an A/D board; HW and SW interfaces allow to monitor and drive the chambers. Synthetic endocardial atrial and ventricle signals performing up to 13 cardiac rhythms are stored in the PC. They are applied to the cardiac chambers by AgCl plates. Sensing electrodes are AgCl needles inserted into the saline.

  • Testing the Immunity of Active Implantable Medical Devices to CW Magnetic Fields up to 1 MHz by an Immersion Method

    This paper presents a magnetic-field system and the method developed for testing the immunity of the active implantable medical devices to continuous- wave magnetic fields in the frequency range up to 1 MHz. The system is able to produce magnetic fields of 150 A/m for frequencies up to 100 kHz and strengths decreasing as l/f between 100 kHz and 1 MHz, with uniformity of the field within plusmn2.5% in the volume for tests. To simulate human tissue, the medical device, together with its leads, is placed on a plastic grid in a saline tank that is introduced in the magnetic field of the induction coil. This paper offers an alternative for the injection voltage methods provided in the actual standards for assessing the protection of the implantable medical devices from the effects of the magnetic fields up to 1 MHz. This paper presents the equipment and signals used, the test procedure, and results from the preliminary tests performed at the Food and Drug Administration-Center for Devices and Radiological Health on implantable pacemakers and neurostimulators. The new system and test method are useful for the EMC research on the implantable medical devices.
