Rhaeos addresses a critical unmet need in the care of patients with hydrocephalus. Arising from a collaboration between materials scientists and neurological surgeons at Northwestern University, they have developed a noninvasive thermal sensor for use in the monitoring of ventricular shunt function. Together, they hope to eradicate the uncertainty faced by patients, families and healthcare providers alike.
