This article presents an overview on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for human implants and investigates the technological feasibility of such implants for locating and tracking persons or for remotely controlling human biological functions. Published results on the miniaturization of implantable passive RFID devices are reported as well as a discussion on the choice of the transmission frequency in wireless communication between a passive RFID device implanted inside human body and an off-body interrogator. The two techniques (i.e., inductive coupling and electromagnetic coupling) currently used for wirelessly supplying power to and read data from a passive implantable RFID device are described and some documented biomedical and therapeutic applications of human RFID-implant devices are finally reported.

Cet article dresse un état de lʼart sur la technologie des puces RFID implantées dans le corps humain. Il explore la faisabilité dʼimplants permettant de localiser en temps réel des personnes ou encore de contrôler à distance les fonctions biologiques du corps humain. Des résultats sur la miniaturisation des puces RFID passives et implantables dans le corps sont présentés. Des considérations sur le choix de la fréquence de la communication sans fil entre lʼimplant RFID et son lecteur sont formulées. Deux techniques usuelles (à savoir le couplage inductif et le couplage électromagnétique) pour alimenter sans fil et à distance lʼimplant RFID passif et pour lire les données de lʼimplant sont décrites. Des applications biomédicales et thérapeutiques des implants RFID sont finalement données.
