Content
A contact-less bio-impedance measurement principle that the research group at the Jozef Stefan Institute has conceived and validated, aims at providing detailed insight into tissue composition and water concentration variation, which could in turn be implemented in a new low power miniaturized medical device for HYB as potential manufacturer. The approach offers an innovative way to respiratory cycle monitoring of a patient. Typical application is apnea monitoring during sleep providing adequate warning to caregivers of certain life-threatening respiratory events. The goal of the project is implementation of a demonstrator prototype of a contact-less bio-impedance device focused on low power consumption, low cost and miniaturization.
Our role
We developed a working prototype of the Low power miniaturized contact-less BIOimpedance Measurement Device, for evaluation of the developed measurement method.
