FlowSense, is a wireless, noninvasive thermal flow sensor that can be mounted on a patient’s neck overlying the shunt to detect the presence and magnitude of CSF. Similar in size to a band-aid, it is composed of soft, silicone with no hard edges. Data is wirelessly transmitted to a custom designed mobile app. With FlowSense, monitoring of shunt function can occur in hospitals and the home, obviating the need for imaging and unnecessary hospital visits.
Investigational use only. Products have not been approved by the FDA.
