Wireless Injectable Computer Could Deliver More Accurate Reading Of Tumor Pressure, University of Michigan Study

Engineering researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a battery-operated injectable computer with a radio antenna that can transmit data to a device located up to 12 inches outside of the body. The miniature computer can be injected into tissue using a medical syringe.

The next step is testing the minuscule computer in animal and tissue models to determine its effectiveness for measuring the pressure inside tumors, as well as other medical applications, explained David Wentzloff, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan.
