Wireless Sensor Could Save Hydrocephalus Patients From Unnecessary Surgery

A woman wears this soft and flexible groundbreaking new sensor, developed by the Rogers Research Group at Northwestern University, which uses measurements of temperature and heat transfer to non-invasively tell if and how much fluid is flowing through a shunt in a hydrocephalus patient. In the study, the skin sensor allowed hydrocephalus patients to see within five minutes of placing it on their skin if there was flow through their shunt. Credit: Northwestern University
