Haha, this device isn't meant to be put inside the patient, it will be on the outside of them since the nerve can be stimulated from the outside with vibration. Micro is definitely what i'm looking for.

The bluetooth suggestion is exactly what I need, I just need to find out if there's a way to just have a controller (like for an RC car) that the patient can carry with them to just press a button and turn on the vibrations

For that I suggest wiring up a potentiometer and on/off switch yourself onto a board, coding it up, heat-shrinking it and giving it to your patient. If it has to look and feel *somewhat* like a product, there are lots of cheapo plastic cases out there in which to store an Arduino, and you can cut holes for the controls that you need to provide.

On the other hand, since it's outside the patient why not go wired? Makes the proof-of-concept build a lot easier, and you'll find out exactly what you need to carry over in the transition (in the next revision) from wired to Bluetooth wireless.

If your patients are going to be carrying the vibration device and you achieve the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi integration, then i would suggest that you find a way to intergrade with the majority of Bluetooth/Wi-Fi capable phones and use this as your remote. Then through software (apps) the options would be endless. For example, you could have different schedules for different patients that have a set of predefined times to turn on and off the device without the patient interaction.

Kick Starter and Indiegogo always have odd devices similar to this looking for funding, for example: http://www.indiegogo.com/drblinky?c=gallery or http://www.indiegogo.com/ZBand -- this one is a remoted controlled silent alarm (using vibrator motor) in a wrist band, controleld via phone app.

I think there are some, remote... eh... adult... toys... out there that would be pretty much what you are describing as well. At least I have seen some that are supose to hook up to a playstation LOL... was in some news article, whole thing was hilarious at the time.

There is also the new MicroChargers toy cars... basically a wheel hooked upto a pager motor which is in turn hooked up to a capacitor, nothing complicated at all, there is no circuit. A seperate hand held charger that charges it up for a few seconds or minutes. Unless you really need it to be remote for some reason, this may be all you need, just have the patient, keep "charging" the device, to turn it on or something...
