B5.3 - Polymer Based Packaging of Silicon Pressure Sensors in the Oral Cavity

I. Stöhr & R. Werthschützky
In this paper we describe a novel polymer based packaging of silicon pressure sensors for use in the oral cavity. The sensors are part of a wireless sensor system for measuring the spatially resolved pressure of the tongue against the hard palate. To minimize the disturbance of the patient during measurement one key requirement is a minimal thickness of the measuring system. For this and other reasons commercially available packaged sensors are not suitable for...
