Nursing and Homecare Shirt
For health wearables we are developing a smart shirt that can perform local positioning indoor and outdoor, fall detection, skind conductance, heart rate, breathing, temperature, and further biometric sensing as well as direct and remote access to the data. In nursing and home care, caretakers can use this data for supporting purposes.
The market for smart wearables is growing rapidly, smart wearables are increasingly being used in the medical world. There is a need in the market to gain insight into health by means of measuring and monitoring body functions. Smart wearables are increasingly being used to do this.
The challenge in the development of the nursing and homecare shirt is to adapt technology so that it can be used in the healthcare sector. The goal is to develop a shirt and application that helps and supports the caregiver in taking care of the patients.
Our solution is a smart wearable shirt which is worn by the person being cared for. Data will be available for the caregiver only to take the patients privacy into account. In the application, caregivers can review data real-time, and will get a signal when there are irregularitie. For example, an unusual hearthrate or if it appears that the patient has fallen.
