Researchers get radio wave energy

Medical implant use long life batteries but researchers have found that these devices can be powered externally via radio.

Electrical engineers at Stanford University have built a cardiac device that uses a combination of induction and radiation to its receiving antenna.

The implant sits below the skin with a coiled antenna specially designed to receive energy no matter what orientation it adopts.
