Influence of electromagnetic radiation emitted by daily-use electronic devices on the Eyemate® system in-vitro: a feasibility study September 2020 Background: Eyemate® is a system for the continual monitoring of intraocular pressure (IOP), composed of an intraocular sensor, and a hand-held reader device. As the eyemate®-IO sensor communicates with the hand-held reader telemetrically, some patients might fear that the electronic devices that they use on a daily basis might somehow interfere with this communication, leading to unreliable measurements of IOP….
Use of a novel telemetric sensor to study interactions of intraocular pressure and ganglion-cell function in glaucoma July 2020 Telemetric implantable micro-sensor for measurement of intraocular pressure enables studying interaction of intraocular pressure and ganglion cell function, providing better understanding of intraocular pressure variations and its impact on visual field loss in glaucoma patients.
Short-Term and Long-Term Variability of Intraocular Pressure measured with an Intraocular Telemetry Sensor in Patients with Glaucoma July 2020 Continual IOP monitoring shows that IOP has moderate short-term and high long-term variability in glaucoma patients. These findings demonstrate that single IOP measurements do not characterize day to day variations in IOP. Moreover, they show the importance of continual IOP monitoring in glaucoma patients.
Using sensors to estimate intraocular pressure: a review of intraocular pressure telemetry in clinical practice July 2020 With regards to the intraocular Eyemate monitor, its implantable nature reserves it for patients in more advanced stages of the disease. Less of a diagnostic test and more of monitoring tool, it is clear that simple and accurate self- monitoring of IOP has a strong potential to improve the care and follow-up of glaucoma patients…
Weekly and seasonal changes of intraocular pressure measured with an implanted intraocular telemetry sensor June 2020 Conclusion This study confirms previously observed seasonal variations of IOP. IOP was significantly higher in winter compared with summer months. Moreover, IOP was lower on Friday than on other days. The explanation for these results …..
Device profile of the EYEMATE-IO™ system for intraocular pressure monitoring: overview of its safety and efficacy May 2020 „….In summary, the results of two independent prospective studies on the Eyemate-IO™ could show a promising potential for telemetric IOP measurement. …“
The Value of Intraocular Pressure Telemetry in Monitoring the Therapeutic Effect of Glaucoma Medications März 2020 „….eyemate paves the way for personalized glaucoma care, in which the actual effect of lifestyle and treatments can be self-monitored by the patients and therapeutic decisions can be made accordingly in real time before there is further optic nerve injury….“
Influence of electromagnetic radiation emitted by daily-use electronic devices on the Eyemate® System. Nov. 2019 Conclusion: Measurements made by the eyemate® system showed no apparent signal drift or evidence of being influenced by external electromagnetic radiation produced by the devices that we tested. Patients who already have the eyemate®-IO sensor implanted, and those who are considering to have one, should be informed that the electromagnetic radiation emitted by their daily-use electronic devices does not interfere with IOP measurements made by the eyemate® system.
Telemetric measurement of intraocular pressure via an implantable pressure sensor – twelve-month results from the ARGOS-02 trial. 23.09.2019 The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and performance of the second generation of an implantable intraocular pressure (IOP) sensor in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG).
Influence of physiological Parameters on IOP during physical activity - a Pilot study with the EYEMATE-IO™ 07.06.2019 Accurate measurements of intraocular pressure by clinically available methods is typically limited to static situations in standard body positions. The aim of this pilot study was to employ a novel telemetric intraocular pressure sensor (EYEMATE-IO™, Implandata Ophthalmic Products GmbH, Hannover, Germany)for recording IOP during different body positions and physical activities.
Correlation between blood pressure, intraocular pressure and intracranial pressure – a pilot study 07.06.2019 To simultaneously measure intraocular pressure (IOP), intracranial pressure (ICP) and blood pressure (BP) variations in glaucoma patients previously provided with an implantable intraocular sensor (EYEMATE-IOTM), while inducing controlled orthostatic pressure variations with the use of a tilt table.
