Technology commonly used in fitness wearables makes continuous patient monitoring possible, while simultaneously freeing up time for busy nurses.
The team behind this invention consists of four NTNU students who want to do make a difference. “Ever since we first met at NTNU, we have enjoyed developing and building things together, and we have developed various products for the consumer market based on electronic sensors. But we also want to make a difference,” says Julian Veisdal.
The team was inspired by data recorded by fitness trackers. They started looking into which functions it would be possible to monitor, with the idea to develop apps and prototypes within this segment, focusing on health rather than exercise.
They received invaluable support and assistance from their mentor/adviser Reinold Ellingsen at the Department of Electronic Systems in getting started. Everyone on the team is using this development project as a starting point for their respective master’s theses within computer technology, informatics, electronics and business development.
