Radio Standards Specification 243, Issue 2, Active Medical Implants Operating in the 402-405 MHz Band, sets out the minimum certification requirements for devices using new and emerging technologies for medical applications including:
- external transceivers (programmers/controls) that incorporate frequency agile interference avoidance systems and transceivers internal to the human body (active medical implants) that radiate radio frequency energy from within the human body; and
- external receivers that rely on single-frequency, low duty cycle, redundant-code repetitive-transmission interference avoidance systems and transmitters internal to the human body (active medical implants) that radiate radio frequency energy from within the human body.
RSS-243, Issue 2, must be used in conjunction with RSS-Gen, General Requirements and Information for the Certification of Radiocommunication Equipment, for general specifications and information relevant to the equipment for which this Standard applies.
