This paper reports the results of the initial animal studies of a wireless, batteryless, implantable pressure sensor using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology. The animal studies were acute and proved the functional feasibility of using MEMS technology for wireless bio sensing. The results are very encouraging and surpassed the majority of the application's requirements, including high sampling speed and high resolution. Based on the lessons learned, second generation wireless sensors are being developed that will provide total system solution.
