The concept of using a three-dimensional electrically small helix antenna as a miniaturized sensor to enable wireless monitoring of drug volume is proposed. The antenna sensor, which is encapsulated within a biocompatible package layer, has great integrability with any drug storage or drug release device to fit inside. In this paper, we demonstrate some prototypes of drug volume monitoring antenna sensors assembled with PDMS packaged drug reservoirs working at 2.4GHz ~ 2.5GHz ISM band with 1.27 ul/MHz sensitivity for epidermal drug delivery application and 2.76 ul/MHz sensitivity for implanted drug delivery application.
