1. A wireless energy transfer system for powering devices implanted in a patient comprising:

  • a high-Q source resonator having a first resonant frequency, the source resonator being external to the patient, coupled to a power source, and configured to generate oscillating magnetic fields at substantially the first resonant frequency,a high-Q device resonator having a second resonant frequency, the device resonator coupled to an implantable device requiring a supply power, the device resonator being internal to the patient, and configured to capture the oscillating magnetic fields generated by the source resonator,a repeater resonator;

    wherein the repeater resonator is positioned to improve the energy transfer between the source resonator and the device resonator.
