Human implants

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Implantable RFID chips designed for animal tagging are now being used in humans as well. An early experiment with RFID implants was conducted by British professor of cybernetics Kevin Warwick, who implanted a chip in his arm in 1998. Applied Digital Solutions proposes their chip's "unique under-the-skin format" as a solution to identity fraud, secure building access, computer access, storage of medical records, anti-kidnapping initiatives and a variety of law-enforcement applications. Combined with sensors to monitor body functions, the Digital Angel device could provide monitoring for patients...more from this article Here

Artifact: Skin Deep

Use of Implanted Patient-Data Chips Stirs Debate on Medicine vs. Privacy

When Daniel Hickey's doctor suggested he have a microchip implanted under his skin to provide instant access to his computerized medical record, the 77-year-old retired naval officer immediately agreed. "If you're unconscious and end up in the emergency room, they won't know anything about you," Hickey said. "With this, they can find out everything they need to know right away and treat you better." ... more on article Here

How we'll keep tags on the old folk

Your widowed father is elderly. He is past the Saga cruise holidays and slow-motion games of golf and is often confused. You don't live around the corner and it's a worry. If he should slip, break his hip and be taken to hospital, will he be able to tell them his medical history or remember his GP's name? You've considered all kinds of scenarios, from a live-in nurse (too expensive) to moving him in with you (he refuses to be uprooted). Now, another option is at hand - a patient-data chip implant. Tiny as a tablet, less expensive than dinner out for the family and no more uncomfortable than a blood-pressure test, the new chip is taking root in America.
Eighty hospitals across the north-east of the US already have the capacity to read the chip implants and, by the end of the year, VeriChip Corporation, the manufacturer, hopes that this will have risen to... more from article Here

FDA approves computer chip for humans

Devices could help doctors with stored medical information

Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Medical milestone or privacy invasion? A tiny computer chip approved Wednesday for implantation in a patient’s arm can speed vital information about a patient’s medical history to doctors and hospitals. But critics warn that it could open new ways to imperil the confidentiality of medical records.
The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that Applied Digital Solutions of Delray Beach, Fla., could market the VeriChip, an implantable computer chip about the size of a grain of rice, for medical purposes...more on article Here

Introduction to RFID
by Rieback, Simpson, Crispo, Tanenbaum
Friday, March 17, 2006

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the latest phase in the decades-old trend of the miniaturization of computers. RFID transponders are tiny resource-limited computers that do not have a battery that needs periodic replacement. RFID tags are inductively powered by their external reading devices, called RFID readers. Once the RFID tag is activated, the tag decodes the incoming query and produces an appropriate response by using the energy of the incoming radio wave to power the chip long enough to respond. RFID tags can do a limited amount of processing, and have a small amount (<1024 bits) of storage. RFID tags are useful for a huge variety of applications. Some of these applications include:...find more on this article
