A Thin-Film Capacitive Sensor with Multiple Applications

Tech ID:
HSC-1252*
Description:

This wireless implantable flexible sensor technology addresses the ubiquitous need for blood pressure monitoring and control, and could serve patients with chronic cardiovascular conditions to ensure compliance with treatment and as a warning system for an acute event. There are significant uses beyond biomedical ? the sensor can be configured to measure capacitance, resistance, or resonance. This platform technology provides for a range of sensors with thin and flexible profiles which are suitable for constrained spaces that were previously inaccessible.
