The next frontier of medicine will be in-body communication and biosensing on the nanoscale.


Ortho-tag’s technologies enable and enhance wireless in-body communication, data exchange/storage, and nanodiagnostic functionality of smart medical implants, providing a versatile, in vivo platform that connects digital health applications and sensors with the body.


The “Ortho-tag” system consists of an implantable “tag” or “wearable device” and touch probe. This innovation improves the secure transmission of wireless communication with implantable devices through transcutaneous volume conduction – not through the air like traditional RFID, but through the electrical conductivity of biological tissues -  and enables health care providers the ability to securely program, reprogram, and obtain real-time access (directly from the patient) to vital in-body information. 

Additional advancements made by Ortho-tag include:  

• Powering implantable tags and biosensors without the use of an internal battery 

• Overcoming signal interference with other metallic implants 

• Reprogrammable high-capacity data storage capability on implantable tags

• System and method for storing information relating to a medical implant device
