Pressure monitoring in the tympanic cavity using resorbable organic sensors (PITROS)

The research proposal on „Pressure monitoring in the tympanic cavity using resorbable organic sensors (PITROS)“ was successfully approved last week by the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Center for Digital Health (EKFZ). In collaboration with Professor Dr. Karl Leo (Faculty of Physics, Institute of Applied Physics), the ERCD will develop an organic electronic sensor for direct pressure monitoring in the tympanic cavity. PITROS applies the highly promising, novel technology of resorbable organic sensors to the pressing medical issue of hearing disorders due to unregulated pressure in the middle ear. Currently, pressure inside the tympanic cavity is only routinely measured indirectly. A direct measurement of this quantity would be enormously valuable for post-surgical monitoring and for a new generation of middle ear implants.
