Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this:Early warning system for detecting deterioration in post intensive care patientsIn the UK 28% of deaths in patients treated on an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) occur after the patients return to the general ward. These patients often suffer late developing complications after initial successful treatment in the ICU. There is usually a period of deterioration when a patient shows some signs of developing a complication. PICRAM (Post Intensive Care Risk Adjusted Monitoring) is a system that watches over the electronic records of the vital signs of patients after discharge from an ICU. It analyses the information to estimate the likelihood that a patient will suffer a complication in the next 24-48 hours. Patients most at risk of complications can then be identified and specialist nurses sent to start treatment early to the patients who need them most. The early detection of deterioration provided by PICRAM can save lives and reduce treatment costs.

The sensors are regularly calibrated, which makes the results much more reliable. Applications: environmental protection, smart buildings and cities
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this:Shimmer3 Bioimpedance Monitor - Monitoring HR, respiration rate and depth, and the increase in fluid in the lungs to triage and remotely monitor Covid-19 patientsManaging the huge influx of patients in hospitals is one of the most critical challenges of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Shimmer’s Bioimpedance Monitor has the potential to help manage this challenge by monitoring HR, respiration rate and depth and the increase in fluid in the lungs to triage and remotely monitor patients. Background Bioimpedance, specifically across the lungs, has long been studied in Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). This measurement provides useful indicators of respiration, including rate, volume, and fluid in the lungs. Because COVID-19 attacks the lungs, these measurements provide clear indications of the progression of the disease. This information can be used in many ways, potentially including: • Monitoring patients remotely at home to determine, if and when, they will need to be admitted to the hospital • Monitoring patients in a hospital to determine when they need more aggressive treatment (e.g., ventilators) • Enabling the earlier release of non-acute patients because of the ability to monitor at home • Adjusting the treatment depending on the rate of progression of disease

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Novel sensor for in vivo nano-mechanical characterizationA nanoforce sensor has been designed to be able to work in aqueous environments. The system is based on a motion amplifier mechanism that allows to amplify extremely small displacements (nanometers) up to 200 times, providing the possibility to characterize the mechano-transduction mechanisms either of a single cell or a tissue in a 3D gel scaffold. Partners to further develop the system applying to specific assays and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Non-Intrusive and contact less procedure to test and characterize RF and mmW integrated analogue circuits with DC or low frequency temperature measurements with applications to failure analysisA new procedure that is able to test (go-no go) and to characterize (i.e. to extract high frequency figures of merit, such as central frequency, 1dB compression point) high frequency analogue circuits by using off-chip temperature measurement techniques, such as infra-red camera, reflectometry, interferometry, etc... The technique has applications in the field of design debugging or failure analysis. It allows to test and characterize the individual blocks that constitute a complete system (e.g. low noise amplifier, mixer, power amplifier), even when their electrical outputs are not accessible to the classical instrumentation equipment. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

It uses a high-frequency and highly sensitive vector magnetometer, gamma-spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, which creates a high-precision description of the depth of occurrence and morphology of the ore body, archaeological artifact or other magnetic anomaly with the size of up to tens of centimeters and less. Due to this, the costs of exploration are significantly, often more than 10 times lower than using conventional methods.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Systems and applications based on indoor positioning via led-lightingThe use of LED lamps available for lighting of different parts of a building or room in such a way as to allow the transmission of very high-frequency codes non-perceptible by humans together with the illumination lights. These codes (one unique code for each LED lamp) will be decoded by light detectors included in smart-devices, or by detectors designed particularly for this purpose. From the code information, the device positioning can be determined with high precision.
