How PaceMakers Improve Quality of Life

A pacemaker is a small, electronic device that is implanted inside a person’s upper chest in order to regulate the pacing of one’s heartbeat. Its sole job is to mimic the body’s natural sinus rhythm or heart rate. It is designed to be surgically implanted fairly easily, requiring only minor surgery, and it is comprised of two main components: a generator and a group of leads, or electrodes. The way it works is by monitoring your heart rate and, if necessary, sending an electrical signal that acts as a stabilizer. It is smart enough to determine whether an increased heart rate is caused by activity or a faulty pacing system in the human body. There are several reasons why a person might need a pacemaker, but regardless of the reason, the main goal is to maintain a steady heartbeat in order to improve a person’s quality of life.

Evolution of the Artificial Heart

How the Heartbeat Can Charge Medical Devices

Defibrillators and pacemakers are medical heart devices that rely on battery power, but these have the disadvantage of requiring replacement every five to ten years. Whenever people need to undergo surgery, it can be costly and introduce new complications, even with routine operations like battery replacement. In order to help prevent these sorts of mandatory invasive surgeries, researchers at Dartmouth College are in the process of developing new methods that will generate electricity by means of leveraging the human heartbeat’s strength instead of relying on external factors.
