Researchers at MIT have created a new in vivo networking system that can wirelessly power and communicate with medical devices inside the body. We speak to the team to find out how eliminating the need for batteries in devices opens up new opportunities.

Also in this issue, we sit down with remote pre-hospital and emergency care systems developer, Remote Diagnostic Technologies, to discuss the future of communications tech in emergency care following the company’s acquisition by health-tech giant Royal Philips.

Plus, we speak to Dr Maria Daniela Angione of Trinity College Dublin to find out more about the development of a disposable electronic chip made from a molecularly-engineered biopolymeric material, which is said to be suitable for use in remote, low-income settings, and explore the fast-growing medical technology sector in Costa Rica, where medical devices have overtaken the agricultural industry to become the country’s biggest export.

Finally, we round up the latest news from the medical device industry, and get comment and analysis from GlobalData’s healthcare analysts on market dynamics, product innovation, regional developments and regulatory issues.
