Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, Nanostim, a secretive California start-up has developed a tiny, wireless pacemaker that has been approved for sale in the European Union.

It’s about the size of a triple A battery, and gets directly inserted into the heart in a non-invasive procedure.

According to St. Jude Medical, the battery of the pacemaker should last 9 to 13 years, which it would then be removed and replaced in a similar procedure to the insertion.

That’s all for this power minute. See you again tomorrow on Meaghan’s Minute.
