Membrane thickness design of implantable bio-MEMS sensors for the in-situ monitoring of blood flow.

This paper presents some ideas for the membrane thickness design of of implantable bio-micro-electro-mechanical systems (bio-MEMS) for the in situ monitoring of blood flow. The objective is to develop a smart wireless sensing unit for non-invasive early stenosis detection in heart bypass grafts. The design includes considerations of nonlinear material… CONTINUE READING
