Tiivistelmä

This paper presents the results of pressure measurements taken after the successful activation of an implantable piezoresistive pressure sensor. The sensor was activated using inductive power transmission for an Intracranial Pressure (ICP) monitoring application. This generated sufficient power (4.47 mW) and voltage (1.894 V) at the sensor input to monitor the pressure changes. Although the changes in voltage were monitored through wires, the required electronics for wireless voltage transfer and measurement in a biological environment are planned in the future. The simulated and measured results of the wireless link, along with the measured changes in pressure are presented. The results are the first step towards a wirelessly powered implant for ICP monitoring.
