Considerations for Radio Frequency Wireless Technology in Medical Devices

Innovation of new and more economical RF technologies has increased their incorporation into medical devices at rapid rates. In an increasingly crowded RF environment,consideration for safe and effective use is paramount. Radio frequency (RF) wireless medical devices are typically defined as devices that incorporate at least one function utilizing wireless RF communication such as RFID, WiFi, Bluetooth or cellular to support health care delivery.n the event that medical device manufacturers incorporate commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) RF wireless components or systems (such as radios or antennas) it must be taken into account that these products may not have been tested to address the needs and risks of medical environments or applications.
