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.

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

It is a road safety system that ensures that the exit access of the vehicles from the parking is performed safely for pedestrians, by monitoring the different access points to the parking, using a stereoscopic vision system with infrared lighting. The images provided by the stereoscopic vision system are processed by a computer, obtaining information regarding the presence of pedestrians in the vicinity of the monitored access point. This information is used to act on a traffic light that controls the exit access of vehicles. The group looks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the sector of transport infrastructure and traffic safety.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Sensor system for the detection of objects / obstacles in critical points of railway linesThe research group in Electronics Engineering Applied to Intelligent Spaces and Transport (GEINTRA) of the Department of Electronics of the University of Alcalá has developed a sensor device and its corresponding procedure to detect the presence of any type of objects (vehicles, people, animals, etc…) in points of interest of the railway route (level crossings, tunnels, etc.), sending to the train the visual information and corresponding warning signs. The device consists of a set of cameras located in the environment of each point of interest, an infrared lighting system, an image processing module and a wireless communication system with the train. The system contributes to the increase of safety in rail transport, providing the machinists with visual information about the state of the conflicting points and notifying the presence of obstacles. The system is capable of detecting the presence of objects in daylight and nighttime conditions. The group seeks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies that work in the manufacture of safety equipment for rail transport systems.

The system will show the path to follow to get to a destination, using acoustic information obtained by a synthesizer voice, similar to how the current GPS navigators do it. The group is interested in reaching commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies dedicated to the designing of mobility assistance systems for blind people.
