Transient micromachined pressure-monitoring implants for chronic brain disorders

Project description

Timely micromachined-enabled prevention saving brains

Millions of people suffer from chronic brain disorders resulting from conditions such as strokes, trauma, and degenerative illnesses. Treatment costs hundreds of billions of euros, mostly due to lack of possibilities of timely reaction enabling prevention of further brain degeneration. Innovative solutions are required for effective brain monitoring in patients with chronic brain disorders. The EU-funded BrainWatch project aims to use micromachining technologies to design, build and define the first transient micromachined pressure monitoring implants enabling wireless communication in case of brain disorders. The project will combine micromachining with the outstanding properties of biodegradable materials for safe application to offer well adapted personalised monitoring out of hospital facilities for a preventative treatment.
