An infrared (IR) transcutaneous remote control was designed for use in the totally implantable middle ear system. Considering the IR reflection, absorption and scattering effect of the skin, the required IR radiant intensity is calculated. After we have implemented the designed control, the transcutaneous operation experiment was carried out using a porcine skin.
