P12026: Wireless Power Transmission Through Skin
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

The senior design team P12026 will be designing a way to transmit wireless power through a medium such as skin. The purpose of this project is to provide power to a Left Ventricular assist device (LVAD) that would be implanted into the human body. The wireless power will eliminate the need for a wire to pass through the skin to power the LVAD. The senior design team (P12026) will build a prototype and test the device on P12022 teams testing bed. The two teams, P12026 and P12022, will work together to meet the customers needs. The customer, Dr. Steven Day, is interested in wireless power transmission through some means other than induction.
