Advanced, Bio-Integrated, and Cloud-Enabled Sensors for Early Diagnosis of Respiratory Infections in the Home Setting.

Project: Research project

Project Details


We are proposing to deploy an advanced, bio-integrated wireless sensor (ADAM) to provide a comprehensive assessment of cardiopulmonary health. The technology employs advanced low-power operation, in-sensor analytics, and cloud integration. The sensor’s proprietary soft mechanics allows for comfortable placement on the suprasternal notch, a location of unique anatomical importance, to collect both core vitals (heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, and physical activity including sleep quality) and novel respiratory digital biomarkers (cough count, swallowing, throat clearing and respiratory effort). We will deploy this system in a cohort of high-risk patients for respiratory infection in a home setting (COPD patients) to evaluate usability and positive predictive power.
