D6 – Smart body patches
Demonstrator leader: Frank Everaerts (TNO/Holst)
Smart body patches and on body appliances constitute an important new upcoming market for devices that are worn on the body or close to the body, and that monitor our health and safety. The growing importance of these devices to drive economic growth in the ECS industry is reflected by the fact that they are represented in this demonstrator by no less than four different demonstrator products:
D6.1 – Smart bandages to monitor wound healing
D6.2 – On body toxic gas monitoring
D6.3 – Unobtrusive heart rate monitoring
D6.4 – A shoe inlay to map foot pressure.
