Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Short Range Devices (SRD); Low Power Active Medical Implants (LP-AMI) operating in the frequency range 2 483,5 MHz to 2 500 MHz; Part 1: Technical characteristics and test methods



The present document covers, for Low Power Active Medical Implants (LP-AMI), and associated Peripherals
(LP-AMI-P) used in an Active Medical Implant Communications System (AMICS), the required characteristics
considered necessary to efficiently use the available spectrum and serve the interests of patients with implanted devices.
The specifications contained in the present document were developed to ensure that the health and safety of the patients
that are using this equipment under the direction of medical practitioners is protected. Of particular importance is the
inclusion of spectrum monitoring and access requirements designed to significantly reduce any interference potential
between AMICS operating in the band or between AMICS and other primary or secondary users of the band. Also
included in the present document is the capability of Low Duty Cycle/Low Power Access in the frequency band.
An AIMD is regulated under the AIMD Directive 90/385/EEC [i.7]: radio parts contained therein (referred to herein as
LP-AMI, and LP-AMI-P for associated peripheral devices) are regulated under the Directive 1999/5/EC [i.1]
(R&TTE Directive).
