Elizabeth.. very nice article.  I'm coming to the party late but still wanted to give my .02.  The ingestible sensors are very interesting however I'm not sure I would want to take one of the pills. 

I like the no battery and antenna approach that uses the stomach's fluid for power source and the body to transmit.  The patch looks somewhat large but guess as time goes on it will get smaller and smaller....


Cheers,

Charles, thanks for the link. If am not wrong, such insulin pump and cardiac monitoring devices are not communicating with any external devices. It's a self monitoring and correcting devices. So there is no need of any remote communication.

These systems could use the bendable lithium-ion batteries that Elizabeth wrote about in the link below. Flexible patches for insulin delivery and cardiac monitoring seem like perfect applications for bendable batteries.

Notarboca, I think HIPPA rules only cover about the datas in repository. I mean the content of health data repository and as of now this sensor communication won't comes under the preview of such laws. If needed federal government can take necessary steps to bring all such things under an umbrella, that's all.

Tim, my major concern is also in similar line. How it’s communicating with Doctor and is this communication channels are secure enough. Otherwise adding extra noises in channel make interpolate the sensor datas and lead to a misreading.

Thanks, Chuck, that looks like an interesting one, too. I don't think I've seen any of those on the market yet.

This link below goes back a couple of years, Ann, but I don't think they've really ironed out enough of the wrinkles yet to put it in a Band-Aid.

I know you covered the Zio Patch before I did, Chuck--didn't realize you saw it "live" at a show. Thanks for the info about MD&M West--I'm looking forward to seeing all the new technologies there.

Tim, there will have to be some sort of method to secure your health data.  HIPPA rules will most likely require it as an necessity.  FDA 510(k) certification may also take this into account.

I think there's definately a market for products like this because so many people are becoming more and more health concious.
