Sensors and beyond

cerebrospinal fluid

cerebrospinal fluid

“A novel long-term implanted sensor can measure and individually adjust cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure in the brain.” In this stage the sensor still needs an external device connected with radio waves. In the external device the physician can read the temperature and CSF pressure. If the pressure exceeds the limits, the physician will act accordingly. In the future it will actually work on its own and adapt when needed. This is the ultimate example of mobile health.

This great (and a bit scary) look into the future, that shows us what we’re aiming at. What healthcare community also needs to do, is look at the currently available technology and use it now. So we can make a difference and improve citizen’s care!
