The human body responds to Wi-Fi signals

05 May 2016, 09:00

The University of Illinois has made an unusual discovery team of scientists - as studies have shown, organs and tissues of the human body can react to the signals of Wi-Fi.

Scientists in a new study tried to find out whether the affect in any way the wireless signals on a living organism (human and animal) tissue, and experimental results surprised scientists - the tissue capable of transmitting a fairly strong wireless signals.

Endryu Siger and his colleagues have used in the course of the pieces of pork and beef liver, through which the experts were able to watch streaming video from Netflix (an American company that provides the ability to watch movies and TV shows on the Internet on a special web site). Team Endryu Signera could experimentally show that through the pieces of meat are wireless signals, and quite powerful, suitable for watching streaming videos (uploaded to the Internet). Researchers were able to get their work rate information through the pieces of meat up to 30 Mbps, which, according to scientists, it is sufficient to overcome the obstacles arising in the way of medical prostheses to date and which are implanted into the human body. Dr. Segner said,

The researchers explained that human tissues and organs also respond to wireless signals, which will be replaced in the medical practice devices that operate on a radio frequency, the main purpose of which is to control medical devices implanted in the body. Today, control of devices within the human body takes place by means of ultrasonic signals, the opening of Signer team will avoid a number of problems at the moment. First of all, doctors today can not increase the power of the radio signal, because the high frequency of negative impact on the organs and systems, which are located next to the built-in appliance.

In addition to studies with pieces of meat, Signer team has already developed a prototype ultrasound device specially adapted for use in humans. In developing the test sample was used the principle of operation of ultrasonic devices for communication, which are used under water.

Dr. Segner explained the principle of the new device is quite simple: the man is a set of bones and various tissues, surrounded by plenty of fluids, and data exchange in the ocean and within the human body is virtually identical.

According to a study group Signer, their opening will make the signal transmission and reception process of medical devices within the human body less aggressive, in particular, to avoid heating adjacent tissues. In addition, Dr. Segner noted that the possibility of a wireless network will allow to use the whole network of the implants in the human body, which will also be able to interact with each other.
