Wireless E-Tattoo for Pneumonia Aims to Transform Patient Monitoring #WearableWednesday
Part tattoo part wearable. This research is looking to monitor patients for pneumonia. Giving new meaning to “sick tats bro” Out of Georgia Tech:
This project combines state-of-the-art technology across wearable devices, integrated circuits and machine learning. And the larger goal is to develop ways to safely monitor patients remotely and maintain high-quality care, wherever they are.
“We hope to solve this global challenge of achieving pervasive surveillance of patients, whether they’re in the hospital, out in the world or quarantining at home in the midst of a pandemic,” said Nanshu Lu, an associate professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics and the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG), who is leading the project.
