Abstract

This book focuses on the realization of wireless power transfer and data communication as a part of a completely wireless system aiming intracranial epilepsy monitoring. The entire system aims to improve the acquired neural signal quality by replacing the analog signal-carrying wire bundles with wireless digital communication. Elimination of the wires will also improve the patient comfort and health by liberating the patient from an intensive care unit at the bedside as the current practice dictates. Additionally, it is anticipated that the risk of infection will decrease owing to the complete suture and sealing of the operated skull region post-surgery. Furthermore, the implemented autonomous wireless recording system prolongs the neural recording period. It thus overcomes the disadvantages of a system with wired recording electrodes which require bulky external medical recording equipment.
