Title
(EN) IMPLANTABLE DEVICE FOR PROSTHESIS MONITORING
Abstract
(EN)

An implantable device, suitable to detect and to monitor infectious processes, in particular at a prosthesis is provided. The device has sensor means, apt to detect an index parameter of an infectious process and a control unit connected thereto, the latter being equipped with a storage area for storing the index parameter. The device further has an antenna, connected to the control unit and configured to allow a bidirectional electromagnetic communication with a remote reader of the device. The device is encapsulated by a casing made of elastomeric material.
