Details surrounding a Samsung patent for brain implants to assist in wireless medical monitoring have been published by the United States Patent and Trademark office.

The patent explains a technology that implants electrodes, called ‘implantable medical devices’ (IMDs), directly into the human brain.

Benefits of the implants include wireless health monitoring of critical organs, such as the heart and brain.

The IMDs may also be used to monitor a patient’s physiological and pathological state.

Samsung noted that it may be difficult to control or change operations of the IMDs due to the complex procedure used to implant them into the brain.

The IMDs would ship with an external device that could wirelessly connect to the IMDs and display information for medical personnel.
