Abstract

An implantable pressure monitoring system is a compelling approach to home monitoring of intracranial pressure in the long term. In our approach, an on-body unit powers a cranially concealed system where a piezoresistive element senses the pressure. A data transmission unit built in the same platform emits a signal at a pressure dependent frequency through a miniature far field antenna. In this work, we focus on assessing the impact of variable temperature on the pressure readout at an off-body unit through in-vitro experiments.
