Do You Have Any Information Regarding the EMI of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Technology?

Posted By RFID Journal, 01.23.2018

As someone with a medical implant (ICD) that is susceptible to Bluetooth electromagnetic interference (EMI), I am concerned about the use of such technologies in the workplace. I am told to keep at least 24 inches away from any Bluetooth signal source. This precludes me from using Bluetooth on my cellphone or any personal devices close to me. Is this something you've written about?

Gary,

I have not seen any studies about Bluetooth's impact on medical implants. If any of our readers have knowledge of such studies, they are invited to post information below.
