Seven medical and technology companies have joined forces to develop an innovative smart health patch. The patch – initially set up to monitor patients with heart failure – will soon be tested for the use of monitoring coronavirus patients.
The sensor in the patch will collect the patient’s vital signs and send the data to the cloud. Having the ability to access the data from a platform, saves healthcare professionals a lot of time. It also makes their work safer as the amount of time that they are exposed to possible infection is reduced.
The smart patch is the result of a collaboration between Byteflies, Melexis, Quad Industries, Televic, Z – Plus and the Belgian departments of Henkel and Nitto.
It is an impressive partnership that will have a great impact for patients and healthcare professionals.
