Microsystems and Sensors for Use in Medical Technology

Consequently, the dosage system can deliver drugs, e.g. for Parkinson therapy, directly to the buccal mucosa where they are efficiently absorbed by the body.

With respect to thermal sensors, a MEMS flow sensor for medical emergency ventilation is presented. Generally, the high humidity of the exhaled air is considered to be a challenge for this kind of application. Therefore, an integrated chip heating is implemented to actively prevent condensation on the sensor.
