Abstract

Scientific and technical innovations done since 1960s resulted in successful development and implementation in medical practice active implantable devices. Most of them are using traditional chemical batteries with limited longevity. Further research progress and development of semiconductors and passive elements base are allowing now to develop fully battery-free implants that could do same tasks, but with much lower sizes, less complication and more ease of use. In this article will be shared results of own development of an wireless-powered, remote controlled, fully implantable electrostimulator of lower esophageal sphincter (WIPLES) aimed to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease, that is very common in current days.
