IntraSense™ for in vivo pressure sensing and other pressure sensors for medical applications

SMI is proud to exhibit for the second time at Compamed in Dusseldorf (November 12th to 15th). Come see us at hall G booth 20-2 where you can learn about our IntraSense™ product line of sensors for in vivo pressure sensing. Our live demo showcases invasive blood pressure measurement with the IntraSense™ sensors. The biocompatible IntraSense™ sensors are ready to use and can be mounted on a catheter tip.

Furthermore we display our entire pressure sensor portfolio for medical applications. SMI offers standard and custom pressure sensing solutions in respiratory, patient monitoring, dialysis and wound therapy.

About IntraSense™:

IntraSenseTM is the first commercially available pressure sensor that fits into 1-French tubes and has pre-attached wires for ease of integration (1-French corresponds to 1/3 mm). With a calibration board available on the proximal end of the device, setup and readout are easy, with both amplified analog as well as digital outputs attached to a 5-pin connector. The extremely small size of the sensor allows it to be attached to catheters, endoscopes and other equipment where space is at a premium. In addition to established pressure measurement procedures in cardiology and neurology, IntraSense™ allows equipment designers to add pressure-sensing functionality to new applications in urology, ENT, reproductive health, guided biopsies and other disciplines.

Calibration and subsequent submersion in saline ensures stable performance (<1mmHg change in output in 37°C saline) for at least twelve hours. The sensors are calibrated across a pressure range from -300 mmHg to +1300 mmHg, and from 0°C to 101°C. Users may use amplified analog outputs or an optional standard I2C digital interface for easy system integration.
