The puborectalis-like artificial anal sphincter system (PAAS) uses transuctaneous energy transmission (TET) to charge lithium batteries integrated within the charging module. Therefore, the system can work stably during in-vivo experiments for a long period of time. Massive in-vivo experiments show that the large amount of heat generated in the wireless charging process is unfavorable to the biological safety of the living tissue near the charging module after PAAS implantation, so it is necessary to reasonably plan the wireless charging process. In this paper, by analyzing the heat conduction relationship of the internal components of the charging module, the internal thermal resistance model of the charging module is established, verified, and modified by in-vitro experiments. The modified model can reliably describe the temperature changes of the living tissue during charging. Based on the modified model, this paper formulates the single maximum continuous wireless charging time during the in-vivo experiment, thus improving the biological safety of PAAS during in-vivo experiments, and then prolonging the implantation time of PAAS.
