The bulky and intrusive wires that have been a mainstay of cardiovascular care might soon be no more. Endotronix has begun development on minimally invasive wireless monitoring devices that can transmit from within a patient’s body. These devices which use a combination of radio frequency identification (RFID) and microelectromechanical (MEMS) technology will monitor a patient’s cardiovascular health from within their heart and blood vessels. The system allows for real-time monitoring of patient health not only in the medical care facility but also at home, reducing treatment costs associated with prolonged hospital stays. There is the potential for this technology to benefit over 60 million people in the United States who have risk factors or developing cardiovascular disease.
