Wearable progress: smart pacemaker communicates with body-area sensor and control network

Last summer, Northwestern University researchers introduced the first-ever transient pacemaker — a fully implantable, wireless device that harmlessly dissolves in the body after it’s no longer needed. Now, they unveil a new, smart version that is integrated into a coordinated network of soft, flexible, wireless, wearable sensors and control units placed around the upper body.

The study will be published Friday (May 27) in the journal Science. The work was led by Northwestern’s John A. Rogers, Igor R. Efimov and Rishi Arora.
