a medical device company located in the Park, displays
its wireless sensing and communication
technology. The device improves management of severe chronic
cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure and aneurysms.
Miniature wireless sensors are implanted without
surgery and transmit cardiac output, blood
pressure and heart rate data. Due to their small size, durability,
and lack of wires and batteries, their sensors are designed
to be permanently implanted.
Using radiofrequency, or RF, energy, the sensors transmit
real-time data to an external electronics module, which then
communicates this information to the patient’s physician.
