1. An implantable sensor for use in measuring a concentration of an analyte in a bodily fluid, the sensor comprising:

  • a body comprising a sensing region adapted for transport of analytes between the sensor and the bodily fluid, wherein the sensing region is located on a curved portion of the body such that when a foreign body capsule forms around the sensor, a contractile force is exerted by the foreign body capsule toward the sensing region, wherein the body comprises a first surface and a second surface, wherein the sensor region is situated approximately at a center point of said first surface, and wherein the sensor is a subcutaneous sensor suitable for implantation in a soft tissue of a body.
