Abstract

Implanted artificial hearts require monitoring of their driving condition and fault detection. We evaluate transmission ability in the presence of magnetic noise while using the magnetic coupling of a transcutaneous coil as the signal transmission method through the skin. Furthermore, we examine the possibility of multi-channel signal transmission.
