    The TC will work with the administrative framework of the EMB Society to promote the welfare and technical enhancement of wearable and implantable body sensors.

    • Interaction with organizers of the EMB Annual conferences for the aim of establishing high-quality technical program and creating the invited session
    • Working with editors of EMB publications to provide Wearable Biomedical Sensors and Systems content of interest to wide audience
    • Organizing Special topic conferences and workshops
    • Providing leadership to the Administrative Committee (AdCom) of EMBS
    • Assisting international and national governing bodies on standards for use and acceptance of wearable biomedical sensors and systems
    • Education
    • Collaboration
    • Flexible and Printed Electronics
    • Interactive, User-Centered Wearable Devices
    • Batteryelss, Passive Wearable and Implantable Devices
    • Artificial Intelligience and Deep Learning in Medicine
    • Internet-of-Things in Healthcare and Medicine
    • Cybersecurity and Health data Management
  • A WBSS TC Member Ivan Lee and his team at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have recently introduced a novel concept – namely Intra-Body Power Transfer (IBPT) – to enable batteryless on-body sensors by transferring the necessary operation power via the human body from a separate, battery-powered on-body unit.
