Micro sensors to monitor blood pressure

Hypertension, if left untreated, can lead to a number of health problems including strokes, heart failure and kidney failure. Current monitoring methods are inefficient and are not performed as regularly as necessary to monitor and mitigate these serious health concerns – cue micro sensors.

Predicting artery plaque rupture

Due to lipid build up in artery walls, plaques form that can rupture and cause significant health problems for patients. Researchers at the Baker institute have worked together with MCN to study and predict the likelihood of plaque rupture in an attempt to prevent it.
