A wireless based power transmission to supply deep brain stimulators.

In this paper, a new wireless power transmission method is proposed to supply deep brain stimulators. By using a wireless charger, the surgery for replacing the stimulator’s batteries and all of its problems including infection, pain, and making patients uneasy, have been omitted. The Resonance inductive coupling (RIC) method is chosen among the different wireless power transmission methods and a resonance-based structure is designed. There are some simulations and practical experiments at the end of the paper which show this structure can generate 324 milliwatt power. Also, the efficiency of this system in 10mm distance is 41.62%
