Health Care, patient monitoring and smart textiles for training/fitness/wellness
For many years we have been working on developing networked and textile integrated sensor solutions for a better healthcare and quality of life. Our innovations record relevant biosignals reliably without limiting the user in any way. Take a look at our technologies at our booth A23 in hall 15!
We show our ELECSA® sweat sensor that detects overstrain from ammonia concentration in real-time. As a mobile, non-invasive alternative for measuring blood lactate, the ELECSA® helps you to manage your workout sessions.
CardioSHIRT: Textile Multichannel ECG for Mobile Use
The »CardioSHIRT«, a mobile multichannel ECG, helps to prevent heart disease by detecting changes in the cardiovascular system at an early stage. The shirt with textile-integrated electrodes and plug-in electronics can record an ECG featuring up to nine channels. It offers quick and secure diagnostic support by transferring medical grade data.
The Fraunhofer IIS »FitnessSHIRT« features measuring equipment for ECG and respiration recording. Sensors are integrated into the shirt for user friendliness, ease of handling and wearing comfort. The »ambiotex-shirt» is a development based on the »FitnessSHIRT« and can be purchased at the ambiotex web store.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is one of the worlds leading application-oriented research institutions for microelectronic and IT system solutions and services. It is the largest of all Fraunhofer Institutes.
Research at Fraunhofer IIS revolves around two guiding topics: In the area of “Audio and Media Technologies”, the institute has been shaping the digitalization of media for more than 30 years now. Fraunhofer IIS was instrumental in the development of mp3 and AAC. In the context of “cognitive sensor technologies”, the institute researches technologies for sensor technology, data transmission technology and data analysis methods. The results of this research have been applied in the areas of communication and application solutions for the Internet of Things, digitalization of human sensing, product and material monitoring.
