Engineer from Stanford University invents way to transfer engery to microimplants inside body

Imagine if physicians could treat more diseases with electronics instead of drugs. 
 
Well, that could soon become a reality thanks to a recent invention. 
 
An engineer from Stanford University has created a safe way to transfer power deep inside the body. 
 
A press release from the university says doctors could use this new wireless system to run tiny electronic medical gadgets like a pacemaker or nerve stimulator the size of a grain of rice. 
 
Think of microimplants being able to monitor vital functions, change neural signals in the brain and even deliver medicines straight to affected areas. 
 
Thanks to the new type of wireless power transfer, the tiny gadgets would be able to be powered and even recharged while still  inside the body, according to researchers.
