Stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans
l’organisme
Les simulateurs cardiaques (ne s’applique qu’aux
dispositifs numériques sans fil) :
L’organisme ‘Wireless Technology Research, LLC
(WTR)’, une firme de recherche indépendante,
a mené une évaluation pluridisciplinaire des
interférences entre les téléphones sans fil portatifs
