Miniature sensor technology: flexible control of intraocular pressure in glaucoma
A microsensor that is implanted in the eye is designed to enable glaucoma patients to measure their intraocular pressure at any time with the help of an external handheld device. The sensor is meant to assist the patients in accurately dosing their medication. The Cicor Group has developed a component of this sensor, a collapsible gold plated coil.
COMPAMED offers high-tech solutions for the domain of medical devices. It has become an international leading trade fair for the supplier market of medical manufacturing. The medical devices industry is one of the most dynamically growing markets. This can be seen in the constantly growing numbers of visitors at the COMPAMED/ MEDICA.

Additive Manufacturing opens up application possibilities that can’t be realised using traditional manufacturing methods. The technique enables the production of complex structures that are both light and strong and offers the option to quickly produce 3D models, to name but a few advantages.
Implants are needed in different types of situations, for instance after an accident or because of a tumor. If the injury is very complicated, patient-specific implants are able to help. These types of implants are made with the help of a 3D printer at the Chair of Fluid Technology and Microfluidics at the University of Rostock.
