|Abstract: ||ICP monitoring is invasive, short term and confined to hospitals. A reliable and mass-producible MEMS-based capacitive microwave ICP sensor and a portable monitor allowing long-term non-invasive ICP monitoring is being developed. The design has a LC tank oscillator operating at the ISM band of 2.4000-2.4835 GHz for -25to200 torr, with 0.37 MHz/torr sensitivity. Prototypes developed with a piezoresistive pressure sensor to monitor the signal transmission (range 0.8 meters), biocompatibility and integrity were implanted in animals. Subsequent animal tests will be carried out for one week to observe the device function and compare with the gold standard “Camino pressure monitor.” This project is funded by NIH, project number 1 R21 NS50590-01.|
