Swiss researchers have developed a small, implantable device that can analyze chemical and protein levels and transmit wireless updates. A patch located on top of the skin powers the implant, which can monitor glucose levels in patients with diabetes, warn of impending heart attacks and help determine optimal chemotherapy doses. Research on the device was to be presented at the Design, Automation, and Test in Europe conference.
