Wireless Medical Devices for
Diagnosis and Therapy
J.-C. Chiao, Ph.D.
Professor, Electrical Engineering, UT Arlington
Adjunct Associate Professor, Internal Medicine, UT Southwestern Medical Center
Miniaturization that revolutionized the electronics industry has now worked its way into medical applications. These new clinical applications are addressing the implementation and cost issues in healthcare, enabling new medicines to advance human welfare and assist improved lifestyles. Several advanced devices are currently being developed by researchers at UT Arlington.
In this presentation, Dr. Chiao discusses his development of wireless microdevices for medical applications, including a closed-loop system for pain recognition and inhibition, a gastro-esophageal reflux monitoring system and an implantable stomach stimulator.
J.-C. Chiao earned his B.S. in electrical engineering at National Taiwan University and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at the California Institute of Technology. Before coming to UT Arlington in 2002, he was a research scientist at Bellcore, a product line manager and senior technology advisor with Chorum Technologies, and an assistant professor at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. Professor Chiao holds 11 patents, is the author of two books and many conference and journal papers, and is a distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. He has received numerous awards for his innovations and teaching and holds both the Jenkins Garrett and the Janet and Mike Greene endowed professorships in electrical engineering at UT Arlington.
