How Do You Upgrade an Archaic Biomedical Device? Make It “Self-Aware”

A new startup is trying to find a better way to detect shunt failure.

In 2013, they began research and development and, in the past year, Senseer came to life – a start-up specializing in biomedical devices with patented microsensing technologies for the world’s first-ever multi-sensor “smart” shunt system. Senseer’s CEO Sascha Lee calls the system a “game-changer for patients.”
