A path loss determination for 403 MHz MICS band antennas based on measurements in body phantom liquid is presented. Suitable antennas were identified that can be used in medical implants. A reproducible measurement setup has been tested that allows for a quantitative comparison of different implant antennas.
For the emergency medical service a reliable sharing and transmitting of medical data and electronic patient records between the ambulance and the hospital is of great importance for the quality of patient care. During the last years new mobile technologies have evolved with much higher bandwidths than before. Nevertheless, the available network bandwidth… (More)
A biochemical sensor capsule for the remote monitoring of an algae culture cultivated in a photobioreactor is presented. In this context a concept of data acquisition and transmission is developed. The data transmission from inside the bioreactor to a receiver outside was analyzed. Hereby recorded packet error rate converged to 30 %.
