Korean scientists make human hand in a broadband

South Korean scientists have demonstrated the possibility of broadband data transmission system, which serves as a channel ... a human arm. Researchers from the National University of Korea located in Seoul, was able to produce data at a speed of 10 megabits per second through the hand of man.

For this experiment, we used two electrodes placed on the skin of his hands at a distance of 30 centimeters from each other, as well as the carrier used low-frequency electromagnetic waves. Such technology can be claimed, mainly in health and medicine.

For example, data transmission through the tissues of the human body, after appropriate improvements can be used to monitor the patient's health status in the conduct of normal life. This system allows you to send information about the level of sugar in the blood or heart rate.

However, in contrast to existing wireless systems to monitor the development of South Korean experts due to its high energy efficiency does not require frequent replacement of batteries. According to the developers, the method of data transmission through the skin can reduce energy consumption monitoring systems by about 90 percent.
