The development of low-power wireless data paths is therefore a key to the successful development of wireless BSN systems. Reducing the power consumption of the radio transceiver is crucial to the practical deployment of BSNs [101, 102]. Advances in miniature devices for biomedical applications are creating everincreasing requirements for their continuous, long lasting and reliable energy supply, particularly for implanted devices. Hitherto, the use of inductive coupling remains a popular technique for implants.
In addition to this, a patient’s drug requirement may temporarily change during an illness, or for example when they are on other medications such as antibiotics.
