Monotic: A Novel Approach to Intracranial Pressure Monitoring

Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is an important tool for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. However, existing ICP monitoring methods are invasive, costly, and often associated with risks and complications. To address these issues, we propose a novel ICP monitoring system called Monotic. Monotic is a non-invasive, low-cost, and reliable method of measuring ICP.

Monotic consists of two components: an external device placed on the forehead and an implantable device placed in the skull. The external device is used to measure the pressure of the intracranial space, while the implantable device monitors the ICP directly. The external device is composed of a pressure-sensitive sensor, a transmitter, and a wireless communication system. The implantable device is composed of an implantable pressure sensor and a wireless communication system.

The external device is placed on the forehead and is connected to the implantable device via a wireless connection. The external device transmits pressure data to the implantable device, which in turn transmits the data to a receiver. The receiver then sends the data to a computer for analysis.

The Monotic system has been tested on a variety of patients with a range of neurological disorders. The results show that the system is able to accurately measure ICP in a variety of patients, with a low degree of error. Furthermore, the system is able to detect small changes in ICP and can alert clinicians of any abnormal pressure changes. The system has also been found to be reliable and safe for use in clinical settings.

In conclusion, Monotic is a novel ICP monitoring system that is non-invasive, low-cost, and reliable. The system has been tested on a variety of patients with various neurological disorders and has been found to be accurate and reliable. The system is also able to detect small changes in ICP and alert clinicians of any abnormal pressure changes. Monotic is a promising system for ICP monitoring and may offer a safe and effective alternative to existing methods.
