Abstract

In this paper, we address the telemetry and wireless powering problems associated with the recently invented leadless pacemaker. To overcome the telemetry problem, we propose a conformal spiral type Implantable antenna at Medical Implanted Communication Service (MICS) band. In addition, we also apply the recently proposed midfield wireless power transfer (WPT) technique at 1.5 GHz to avoid the bulky energy storage component. We simulate and experimentally measure the performance of the implantable antenna by using porcine heart tissue. Our research shows that, the implantable antenna and wireless power transfer scheme can be implemented in a leadless pacemaker without any significant coupling between them.
