Millar Introduces Novel TiSense Chronic Pressure Measurement Platform
Millar, an OEM solutions partner known for its expertise in MEMS pressure sensor integration, is excited to introduce its groundbreaking technology platform for chronic pressure measurement, TiSense. This revolutionary platform is set to redefine the field of implantable medical devices by offering a long-term solution for pressure monitoring. TiSense is poised to usher in a new era of innovation in the medical device industry, with the potential to enhance patient outcomes significantly.
TiSense comprises a MEMS piezo-resistive sensor seamlessly integrated into a chronic implantable sensor module constructed from titanium. This module is not only encapsulated but also hermetically sealed, allowing for implantation periods exceeding five years. TiSense was designed to cater to customers seeking extended implantation durations, surpassing the typical range of 7 to 29 days offered by Millar's standard catheter-based solutions. The module features an absolute, half-bridge MEMS sensor that accurately measures absolute pressure relative to an internal vacuum.
At the heart of TiSense lies titanium, an exceptional material that can transform conventional medical devices into extraordinary solutions due to its unmatched biocompatibility and exceptional strength, ensuring durability and exceptional performance. This unique feature sets a new benchmark for medical device materials.
One of TiSense's standout attributes is its versatility. This platform is highly adaptable, allowing for customization to meet the specific requirements of each customer's unique use case or application. The module can withstand millions of pressure cycles, making it well-suited for applications in cardiovascular contexts that require precise measurement of dynamic pressures. Moreover, TiSense can also be effectively used in low-pressure and static pressure scenarios to capture readings, such as intracranial pressures or intraocular pressures. This adaptability underscores Millar's commitment to providing tailored solutions.
TiSense represents a commitment to reshaping the landscape of long-term pressure measurement, setting new standards for pressure sensing technology and medical devices that are poised to have a lasting impact on the industry for years to come.
