Abstract

Near field communication (NFC) technology can be a desirable technology for implantable medical devices (IMDs) owing to its communication range short enough for privacy and long enough for most IMD insertion locations. Today's smart phones already have NFC capability and they can enable remote monitoring and configuration by doctors and monitoring stations through 3G/4G connections. Although it can be implemented today, more careful study is needed in terms of specific absorption rate (SAR), achievable data rate, and security, for actual use on the IMDs. 5 Acknowledgments.
