It’s good to think different at times, especially when the change talks about goodness. Samsung seems to have done something exactly similar with its latest brain implant technology. Well, the tech giant recently shed light on the new experimental procedures that monitor human brain’s pathological as well as physiological states.
Divulging some more details from one of its filed patents, Samsung could now be working on an advanced technology that embeds electrodes directly into the human brain. But, the question here arises what exactly does it function for?
The patent explains the meticulously devised implantable medical devices enable wireless health examination of critical and delicate organs such as the brain and heart. Not only this, the brain implant technology could also be employed to observe a patient’s physiological and pathological states (as aforementioned).
Since the procedures used to suffuse the technology into human brain is somewhat complicated, Samsung believes it may be difficult to alter or control operations of the implantable medical devices. What’s more, the solution will be shipping with an external device that could seamlessly and wirelessly amalgamate with the new Samsung IMDs and show information for medical personnel.
By taking advantage of which, the system may assist in accumulating vitals and understanding an individual’s brainwave, motion and pupil states. In fact, the technology also comes integrated with a unique notice and alarm generator configured to induce a signal.
Whereby, the said signal will eventually inform the user that an outside source is accessing the recorded data. Though the IMD is yet to be made available commercial, the development emerges to be enormously well-timed and promising. However for now, the patent brain implant technology by Samsung has been published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
