H&D Wireless receives order for EU project for osteoarthritis treatment

osteoarthritis treatmentIn total, the EU estimates that 40 million are affected, which is estimated to double within 10 years as a result of ageing populations and increased obesity.

The market for osteoarthritis is expected to increase from 1.4 billion EUR 2016 to 3.1 billion EUR according to GlobalData.

The consortium that has chosen H&D Wireless as a partner has eight participating players under the leadership of one of Europe’s most reputable universities in the field.

In addition to customizing the Griffin-IoT platform for this application, H&D Wireless delivers radio communication for sensor reading and dosage, mobile app for both doctor and patient and a secure cloud platform for testing and prototyping. The project will be conducted within business unit LABS and is funded at 100%

Wearable drug delivery IoT platform supports continuous therapy monitoring

wearable medical deviceSensor expert Sensirion and Quantex Arc Ltd have joined forces to develop an innovative wearable drug delivery IoT Platform, dubbed “Quantex 4C” for infusion therapies.

The new concept integrates connectivity with a modular drug delivery platform and enables continuous monitoring of the therapy with the help of a single use liquid flow sensor for safe ambulatory treatments.

Quantex 4C

Sensirion’s cost-effective LD20 single-use liquid flow sensor used for this concept study, is very compact and measures flow rates in the micro and millilitre per hour range with outstanding precision and reliability thanks to patented CMOSens Technology.

Wireless blood flow sensor wraps around arteries, self-resorbs

biosensor
Using exclusively bio-compatible and bio-degradable materials, researchers from the University of Stanford have devised a capacitive-based artery blood-flow sensor which can be read out wirelessly once implanted, and which does not require removal as it self-resorbs after a few months of operation.

The thin flexible device described in a paper titled “Biodegradable and flexible arterial-pulse sensor for the wireless monitoring of blood flow” published in Nature Biomedical Engineering was designed to locally monitor blood flow after complex reconstructive surgeries involving “anastomosis”, the suturing of blood vessels, such as would be the case in cardiovascular, vascular and transplantation operations.
