Combined technologies and intellectual property of Lee Berger, MD (Ortho-tag Founder & Orthopedic Surgeon) enable
and enhance the wireless
in-body communication, real-time data exchange/storage, diagnostics, and in vivo drug administrative capabilities of smart medical implants, providing a versatile, in-vivo platform that connects digital health applications and sensors with the human body.
Currently, there are a limited number of methods for communicating with implanted medical devices and nobiosensors. This lack in communication with medical implants leads to an uncertainty of conditions that might present themselves post-surgery (e.g. infections, foreign body reaction, or implant malfunction). Traditional methods of communicating from within the body is either radio frequency identification (RFID) or wire/tethered connection. These methods are flawed by signal interference (with metallic implants or external sources), power supply, and data security.
Ortho-tag offeres a viable alternative to traditional RFID by employing transcutaneous volume conduction (TVC). This proprietary technology enables
and enhances wireless in-body communication, and is also applied to externally powering implanted medical devices and sensors.
