Medical devices are increasingly incorporating wireless functionality to support new monitoring, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications that are improving patient care and lowering healthcare costs. These wireless devices have significant power constraints, due to their small size and the requirement to operate off small batteries for long periods of time. This article examines some of the requirements of such wireless implantable medical devices, the need for low power wakeup radios to support them, and a comparison of candidate technology.
