A fully wireless implantable system can be used for long-term monitoring of intracranial pressure. In this type of system, an implant is placed under the skull and monitored pressure is transmitted wirelessly outside the skull. Moreover, the implant is powered through an inductive coupling. To avoid any infection and damage to the implant, the implant should be coated with biocompatible material. In this paper, we investigate the impact of coating on the maximum wireless link power efficiency through simulations in anatomical and layered tissue head models and present test results.
