ID Number 961
Study Type Engineering & Physics
Model 400, 900, 1800 MHz (Tetra, GSM) exposure to mobile phone users and analysis of electromagnetic interference with cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators

Different types of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators will be evaluated for possible interference by cell phones. The interaction between pacemaker technology and human cardiac electrophysiology will be analyzed. The results are correlated to the hemodynamic function of the heart. The study aims to develop a model and equipment to test the safety of new therapeutic devices during exposure to RF fields emitted by cellular phones.
