Project Description

For both in- and outpatient applications the electronic interface to typical sensors and electrodes is still embodied in size and weight that prevents it from being used in the convenient and flexible way expected by new visions of healthcare provision. Integration of the plethora of functionalities required in a wearable medical monitor, including the management of wireless connectivity and its power consumption, holds the key to the breakthrough required for clinical and user acceptance of many continuous use cases.
