Wearable five-channel ECG chip monitors foetal heart rate

Wearable five-channel ECG chip monitors foetal heart rate
At FutureSummits, imec and Bloomlife are showcasing a prototype of the wearable five-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) chip to continuously and accurately monitor foetal heart rate and mobility, two important indicators of a baby’s wellbeing. With the development of this chip, a major hurdle has been taken in the creation of a wearable ECG system that can accurately measure the foetal ECG as early as week 20 in a woman’s pregnancy.

Small sensor device developed to detect cancer from breath

Small sensor device developed to detect cancer from breath
SniffPhone, currently in its prototype phase, enables early diagnosis of gastric cancer from a person’s exhaled breath. The new method may revolutionise cancer screening all over the world. VTT has participated to the development of SniffPhone prototype and concept with nine other project partners. SniffPhone is a small sensor device developed for cancer screening that can be attached to a smartphone. In practice, the user holds the device in front of his or her mouth and exhales onto the sensor to give breath sample.
