Proof of principle application for biosensors in animal models


“NXTSens has developed an implantable continuous monitoring, stand-alone and potentially mass-producible microsensor for accurate monitoring of tissue pressure and temperature in damaged limb muscles to better diagnose acute compartment syndrome (ACS). The proposed research will involve several sub-projects that include:

  1. develop appropriate surgical models for the accurate and reproducible placement of the microsensors in rodent compartments;
  2. test the performance of a prototype microsensor in a relevant cadaver model
