News from Stanford: Modelling Tissue as a Dielectric Shows Feasibility of Inductive Power Transfer at 1 GHz

Stanford Engineering assistant professor  Ada Poon demonstrated a tiny, wirelessly powered, self-propelled medical device capable of controlled motion through blood.  The device drives electrical current directly through the fluid, which in the presence of an external magnetic field creates a directional force that pushes the device forward. This type of device is capable of moving at
