Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We built a small flowmeter system to measure low flow rates. The flowmeter indicated different flow rates by producing a voltage measure. The flowmeter is sensitive at low flow rates (below 1.8 ml/min) but there is a saturation point at higher flow rates (above 2 ml/min). This flowmeter could be used to develop a smart shunt for patients with hydrocephalus.
