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.
