Research output: Patent


A sensor and a system including a sensor for monitoring a prosthesis implanted in biological tissue of a prosthesis recipient are described. A sensor is implanted in the biological tissue proximate to the prosthesis. The sensor transmits a measurement signal towards the prosthesis and a receiver receives the measurement signal. An antenna transmits data dependent on the measurement signal to an external device. A data analyser analyses the transmitted data to obtain monitoring information comprising spatial position of the prosthesis relative to the one or more sensors. The system may comprise more than one sensor.
