"Implantable sensor system with a miniaturized two axis acceleration sensor"

The presentation shows an overall system for hemodynamic controlling consisting of an extra corporal transmitter / reader and an implantable sensor unit. The implantable sensor module detects pressure, acceleration, temperature, voltage, and impedance. In order to achieve the required miniaturization the acceleration sensor was developed in a MEMS (micro electro mechanical system) technology. Excepting the MEMS and pressure sensor all other sensor functions are integrated in the ASIC.
