Development and evaluation of insertion mechanism for microsensors in skin

In this research, we will design and build two different kinds of disposable low-cost applicators to apply an implantable sensor into the skin, where the sensor cartridge can be loaded manually. The applicators are meant to be used for two different settings: one in hospital and acute care facilities, where the health provider will implant the sensor device; the other at home, where the patients can apply the sensor by themselves. We plan to design the applicators using SolidWorks.
