VISION OF THE VIRTUAL PROGRAMMER - Steps Towards Change in Instrument Systems for Implantable Medical Devices

Touby Drew, Steve Goetz

Abstract

Active implantable medical devices increasingly depend on and interact with external systems of instrument hardware and software. Based on our work in defining and refining the direction of next generation instruments, we submit that there are and will increasingly be a trend towards complex, mainstream instrument systems, which are distributed, decoupled and part of rich modular information ecologies. As this shift occurs, important challenges arise and must be met with domain-specific solutions including those in the areas of security, repartitioning, and changes to instrument architecture and development.
