Biosense develops Non-Contact ECG Sensors
ECG measurements are an important indicator of abnormal heart conditions and are recorded using the electrical activity of the heart. A traditional ECG reading uses up to 12 non-invasive electrodes placed on the patient’s chest and is easily removed once the test is completed. However, the removal of ECG electrodes sometimes leaves rashes or otherwise irritates the skin. Therefore, startups & scaleups develop wireless solutions for ECG equipment to not cause any inconvenience to patients.
US-American startup Biosense develops a non-contact ECG sensor that works through multiple layers of fabric. The sensor is thin and flexible and therefore can be embedded into mattresses that wirelessly collect signal data while a patient lies on it. Additionally, the sensor is tuned to not cause any signal interference with medical devices that are present in its vicinity. The solution provides a patient-friendly option for remote monitoring and has additional applications in the NICU, delivery, and burn units.
Neuraura creates a Wireless Wearable EEG Monitor
A common problem in the healthcare industry is providing sufficient attention to outpatient care – especially when hospitals operate at high capacity. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the outpatient treatment being delayed further thus causing hurried consultations, diagnosis, and treatment. That is why remote monitoring solutions are being developed to monitor multiple patients while maintaining high standards of healthcare service levels.
Canadian startup Neuraura develops a wireless wearable EEG device that improves the ambulatory care provided by healthcare professionals. The wearable EEG west includes sensors that collect and process EEG data from the wearer using Neuraura’s visualization software. The solution reduces the time required to diagnose and monitor patients. Additionally, it shortens the time a patient needs to stay in outpatient care through faster recovery.
Umana Medical develops a non-invasive Heart Monitoring Sensor
Wearable devices have seen tremendous developments in their biological monitoring capabilities leading to their application in more and more areas. However, developers of wearable sensors are not fully utilizing sensor technology as most of them are focused on use cases for smartwatches or other bulky wearable systems. To change this, startups & scaleups develop sensor solutions such as patches and “tattoos” that provide hospital-level vital sign monitoring in a remote manner.
Malta-based startup Umana Medical is specialized in creating smart sensors for wireless heart and vital sign monitoring. Their patented SmarterSkin sensor is designed to look like a tattoo and works through conductive ink that collects biosignals non-invasively. The wearable sensor can be worn throughout the day to collect ECG and other biosignal data without having negative effects on the skin, thereby enabling a better remote health monitoring solution.
Brainwavebank builds a Wireless EEG Headset
Modern EEG monitoring solutions require an extensive setup process using bulky hardware and a lot of connected wiring to accurately track brain signals. In the research process, these complications are time-consuming, expensive, and limit the extension of research volunteers. The development of simple and easy to set up, wireless EEG devices broadens the application of brain signal monitoring research and creates more available data for processing.
UK-based startup BrainWaveBank develops a wireless EEG headset that uses high-performance cloud-based analytics. The device has a 16-channel dry sensor system that records the wearer’s brain signals which are collected through gamified cognitive tests. The setup time of 5 minutes for the headset allows for more tests to be carried out with more than one user at a time. Additionally, the startup’s cloud-based analytics platform uses advanced machine learning to extract biomarker information that further provides insights to researchers and healthcare technology developers.
Imderix manufactures a Real-Time Cardiac Impulse Monitor
Cardiovascular diseases can be treated better if they are diagnosed early and are treated accordingly. As most tests for diagnosis require visiting a hospital or clinic, patients often neglect to check early indicators or symptoms of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, remote consultations with healthcare professionals sometimes do not provide enough information for a detailed diagnosis. Therefore portable ECG devices are developed to close the gap.
US-American startup Imedrix provides a mobile ECG/EKG reading device. The product, called KardioScreen, uses a combination of AI, cloud infrastructure, and machine learning for the real-time recording and diagnosis of cardiac impulses. The device does not require professional training to be operated on and provides patients with a method for full medical-grade ECG readings at home.
