Development of a Fully Implantable Epidural Pressure (EDP) Sensor
In order to avoid infection and inconvenience to patients, telemetric measurement of the extradural pressure (EDP) is the ideal method of monitoring intracranial pressure (ICP). We have developed a new telemetric EDP sensor in cooperation with Nagano Keiki Seisakusyo Co., Ltd.
