Our concept is to combine commercially available technology that is mass produced into a single sensor module, capable of accurately measuring the respiratory rate.
The sensor measures the movement of the lower chest area, and using a novel algorithm it estimates the respiratory rate. Additonally, the sensor will transmit data using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and we aim for a product that will be easily integrated into clinical information systems, as well as a functional stand-alone product. Our goal is to produce a sensor that is comfortable to wear, and easy to use with minimum of training.
The final product will be cheap to produce, and the value lies in an effective and precise algorithm that gives reliable results to medical professionals.
