Revolutionary recharging pacemaker unveiled!

Scientists in Seattle have developed a groundbreaking wireless pacemaker that can partially recharge itself by generating electrical energy from the patient’s heartbeat. 

Although the current method generates only 10% of the energy required for the next heartbeat, the researchers aim to improve efficiency and partner with major pacemaker companies for broader implementation. The experimental wireless pacemaker is significantly smaller than traditional pacemakers and resides entirely in the heart’s right ventricle. 

The researchers plan to conduct long-term trials with human subjects to ensure the device’s efficacy and work on increasing the recharge rate. If successful, this technology could revolutionize pacemaker designs, providing a more sustainable and practical solution for patients with heart complications, especially those requiring multiple pacemakers over their lifetimes.
