Charging pacemaker batteries with ultrasound

April 26, 2022

Scientists from the South Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) are working on a noninvasive battery recharging system for heart pacemakers, which is a more convenient alternative to surgical replacement once a pacemaker’s battery loses charge. KIST’s implantable ultrasound-powered generator utilises “triboelectric” materials – when rubbed together, these materials produce an electric charge. In […]
