Abstract

This paper describes the design, implementation and testing of a wireless blood pressure sensing implant. The implant is mounted on a stent graft. The implant along with the stent graft must fit into a 16F applicator stent delivery system. The implant is powered using the energy harvested from wireless power transmission. The measured pressure data is sent wirelessly to an external data reader hardware. The pressure measurement must have resolution of 1 mmHg.
