Pretty sure its not a pressure sensor at all. just a strain gauge-like thing on the cornea, outside the eye. so its inferring pressure from cornral strain, which is pretty much what they do in the office with the air puff or goldman tonometer. patient to patient variability might be big, but MDs can at least monitor relative changes.
Interesting! The way this lens gets power and communicates data is very interesting. This is the basic principle being used in NFC. But I didnít get it how does the lens senses the ocular pressure? It mus use some very special strain gauges.
a very innovative solution indeed. Can a similar device be developed for blood pressure monitoring of a patient because in this case also the BP measured by the doctor in his dispensary is always different (normally higher) than the BP while doing normal household activities
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
