Development of an obstruction-free smart hydrocephalus shunt

Dixon's thesis is focused on the development of an implantable active drainage device to manage intracranial pressure in hydrocephalus patients. In particular, the project is aimed at developing a device that leads to a hydrocephalus shunt lasting longer - without failure from occlusion - compared to current passive shunt devices.
