XXX. Human Microchip Implants: Running Timeline of Movement toward Standardized Location

Posted: February 27, 2004

A. BBC News: UK Scientist Implanted with Chip in Arm: August 25, 1998

BBC News reported that a UK scientist received an implanted chip.

A silicon chip has been successfully implanted into the arm of a UK scientist...

The chip has been inserted in Professor Kevin Warwick's upper arm.550

B. Sunday Times: Human Microchips Implants: Not on Areas That Can Be Amputated: October 11, 1998

The Sunday Times, of London, in 1998, reported that a "tiny microchip implant can be tracked by satellite to reveal a kidnap victim's location."

The 43 Europeans and two Americans who have so far adopted the chip had surgery under a light anaesthetic. Gen-Etics claims the surgery is intended to daze the patient and prevent him or her remembering exactly where the incision was made, so he cannot reveal the chip's location to his abductors even under torture...

Only a small scar is visible and the chip escapes detection by x-rays. It is inserted under the skin but not on areas that can be amputated, including the hands, nose and ears...551

C. Dr. Richard Seelig: Applied Digital Solutions: Forearm and Hip/Leg: EE Times, January 7, 2002, and Miami Herald, March 10, 2002

The EE Times reported that "He placed one chip in his left forearm and the other near the artificial hip in his right leg," while the March 10, 2002, Miami Herald reported that he "inserted two chips -- one in his right forearm, the other in his right hip."

D. Time Magazine: March 11, 2002: Left Arms of Three Family Members

A March 11, 2002 Time article entitled "Meet the Chipsons" and subtitled "Jeffrey, Leslie and their boy Derek will be America's first Cyborg family. Are you ready to 'Get Chipped'?" states that a microchip will be injected in their left arms.

Derek [Jacobs of Boca Raton, Fla.], his mom Leslie and his dad Jeffrey are the first volunteer test subjects for a new, implantable computer device called VeriChip. Later this spring, pending Food and Drug Administration approval, doctors will load a wide-bore needle with a microchip containing a few kilobytes of silicon memory and a tiny radio transmitter and inject it under the skin of their left arms, where it will serve as a medical identification device.554

E. Computer Chip Would Be Injected "Probably in the Arm": Adrian Sainz: Associated Press: April 1, 2002

An Associated Press article notes that the computer chip would be implanted in a person's arm.

The VeriChip, made by Applied Digital Solutions in Palm Beach County, is about the size of a grain of rice. It would be injected under a person's skin, probably in the arm, and could be read only by scanners.555

Reuters noted in an article about the implantation of microchips in a Florida family that the microchips would be implanted in the arms.

Doctors implanted microchips containing a way to access medical information in the arms of three members of a Florida family on Friday, making them the first people to get what the manufacturer hopes will become a standard way of retrieving such data in the future...

Jeffrey Jacobs, 48, his wife Leslie Jacobs, 46, and their son Derek Jacobs, 14, volunteered to become the first to be implanted with the VeriChip, made by Palm Beach-based Applied Digital Solutions Inc. They underwent the brief procedure at a Boca Raton medical clinic...556

The chips, called the VeriChip, were designed by Palm Beach-based Applied Digital Solutions Inc...557

G. First Alzheimer's Patient to Receive Permanent Identification Microchip Near Right Shoulder Blade: Palm Beach Post Staff Writer: Friday, May 10, 2002

Nathan Isaacson, an Alzheimer's patient, was scheduled to receive a microchip implant near his right shoulder blade.

On a warm Saturday morning, 83-year-old Nathan Isaacson of Tamarac...who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's, had forgotten to fill up his gas tank...

To bring his family peace of mind, Isaacson today will trade in the silver identification necklace he wears to become the first Alzheimer's patient to receive a permanent identification microchip called the VeriChip. It was developed by Palm Beach-based Applied digital Solutions.

The microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, will be injected near Isaacson's right shoulder blade by his own physician, Dr. Harvey Kleiner of Sunrise...

Isaacson will go back to the doctors in about eight months for another first. Doctors will implant a second chip, similar in size to a pacemaker, that will allow his family to track his whereabouts.558

H. Chips Inserted into Backs of Eight Alzheimer's Patients: World Magazine: June 15, 2002

Mindy Belz's Special Report "State of the World" article, "Recipe for Progress: ID Chips," states:

Last month eight Alzheimer's patients were injected with silicon chips, making them as scannable as a bag of potato chips at the supermarket.

The devices are about the size of a grain of rice and were developed in Florida. They are inserted into the upper back and are invisible except when a hand-held scanner is waved over the area...Applied Digital Solutions Inc., maker of the VeriChip, will soon have a more complex device. It will be able to receive GPS satellite signals and transmit a person's location.559

I. Applied Digital Solutions: Web page: Upper Arm: Noted January 9, 2003

J. "Applied Digital Solutions[']...Public Relations Consultant...Wears an Implant in His Upper Right Arm": Privacy Journal: Summary of February 2003 Edition Article in the March 2003 Edition

Privacy Journal reported that an "Applied Digital Solutions[']...public relations consultant...wears an implant in his upper right arm."

Indeed, doctors for Applied Digital Solutions first implanted the tiny VeriChip transponder in a memory-impaired patient on May 10, 2002. Now there are 20 Americans walking around with them, including the company's public relations consultant, who proudly wears an implant in his upper right arm. The new chips are inert demos right now because the reading devices for them are scarce and because the chips do not locate the individual or store medical information.

K. Microchip Injected into Boston Globe Correspondent's Right Arm: The Boston Globe: May 20, 2003

Boston Globe Correspondent Angela Swafford reported that she received a microchip in her right arm.

The painless procedure barely lasted 15 minutes. In his South Florida office, Dr. Harvey Kleiner applied a local anesthetic above the tricep of my right arm, then he inserted a thick needle deep under the skin.

"First we locate a prime spot," he said. "The next thing is to release the button that triggers the injection mechanism, and that's it, the cargo's been delivered."

The "cargo" was a half-inch-long microchip inside a glass and silicone cylinder that carries my permanent identification number.562

L. Right Arm Mentioned: The Boston Globe: May 20, 2003

Applied Digital Solutions president Scott Silverman noted the right arm in a Boston Globe quote.

For ADS's Silverman, both the VeriChip and its future GPS-based version are a matter of individual choice.

"No one is forcing you to have a VeriChip. If you want a chip in your right arm you are going to know it is there because you will see it injected."563

M. Arm or Hip; Right Arm : Associated Press on Newsday.com: July 18, 2003
