Body-worn IoT devices are fast gaining adoption in the healthcare space, but the next horizon is IoT devices that can be placed inside the body. The field is growing rapidly, and more companies are looking to develop IoT medical implantables for commercialization. Appling Big Data and IoT to implants can help improve the quality of life for many people. But there are risks and challenges, from surgical considerations, to adoption, to device design.
Topics covered include:
- Design challenges with technology (electronic components, battery sustainability, material costs, etc.)
- The challenges, barriers and successes of implementation in developing economies with use cases examples
- Body burden
- Creating the ecosystem (cloud storage, analytics, reports)
- Overcoming regulatory and quality concerns (including cyber security)
