Band-Aid-like Skin Sensor Monitors Shunts in Hydrocephalus Patients

A new wireless sensor may change the way hydrocephalus patients manage their condition. The sensor, resembling a Band-Aid, is designed to determine if a patient’s shunt is working. A shunt is a surgically implanted tube that drains excess fluid from the brain. However, shunt failure is common. The sensor, developed at Northwestern University, uses temperature measurements to quickly and non-invasively determine how much fluid is flowing through the shunt. “It’s a wearable device with a specific but useful mode of operation that’s addressing an unmet need in clinical medicine,” said co-senior author John A. Rogers.
