This section provides a description for magnetically triggered composite membrane. This innovation, being tested at Children's Hospital Boston, is aimed at giving precise doses of drugs that cannot be taken orally as needed over a long period of time. Using this technology involves nanoparticles that heat up when a magnetic field is turned on outside the body. It is believed that this device will deliver medications even without implanting an electronic chip or heat source in the patient to release the drugs.
