Webinar: Wearable technologies for implantables and artificial organs

The next step in wearables is ... implantables. We will start tackling chronic diseases with implantable sensors and actuators, linked to the outside world through companion wearables. Ideally, this results in closed-loop solutions for the diseases.

In this webinar on demand, Geert Langereis, Program Manager Health research at imec, sheds light on imec’s recent developments in the field of implantables and artificial organs. He discusses the building blocks that imec is working on, such as wireless powering, communication, and edge computing.
