Smart Drug Delivery System

This application relates generally to the field of drug delivery and more particularly to a smart drug delivery system and a method of implementation. The system includes a biological sensory component, an analytical component coupled to the biological sensory component and a drug delivery component coupled to the analytical component for delivering a drug to a host based on the biological sensory component. A power harvesting and storage system can be designed and embedded in the smart drug delivery system to store and deliver energy from multiple sources of energy harvesting devices, thus providing a constant energy source and removing the need for batteries. The advantages of the system are apparent when one considers that medications can be delivered as needed over extended periods of time. The detection component may be used to measure glucose levels for insulin injections or to deliver antidotes in military applications involving chemical or biological attacks.

Background information on some of the basic technology addressed or referred to in this application is available from Wikipedia.
