UA researchers are developing a new battery-free pacemaker

Researchers at the University of Arizona are working on a new kind of pacemaker that would be battery-free and cause wearers less pain.

Philipp Gutruf, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the university, is one of the lead scientists on the project.

The Show spoke with him, and the conversation began by talking about what led to the idea to even look in this direction.
