Stanford Scientists Build Tiny Implantable Sensor to Detect Blood And Intracranial Pressures (VIDEO)

A lot of patients can benefit from continuous blood pressure monitoring, but inflatable arm cuffs are currently the only reliable method to do so. Attempts are currently underway by a number of organizations to use pulse wave transit time obtained through single lead ECG to provide cuffless blood pressure monitoring… Continue reading “Stanford Scientists Build Tiny Implantable Sensor to Detect Blood And Intracranial Pressures (VIDEO)”

In-flight sensor tests a step toward Structural Health Monitoring for safer flights

Nine commercial aircraft flying regular routes are on the frontier of aviation safety, carrying sensors that monitor their structural health along with their routine maintenance. These flight tests are part of a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification process that will make the sensors widely available to U.S. airlines.
