Networking Bodies is a collaborative project between Philips , S.Labs and (Art)ScienceBLR. The project focuses developing Remote Health Monitoring systems.

Background

In India, given shortage of trained staff, providing access to healthcare in remote areas and also care shifting from traditional settings like hospital to home, managing patients under treatment and patients recovering say from surgery has gained importance. We are looking at creating probes, through a hands-on design & technology & design thinking driven exploration leading to new usages and design strategy.

Example Products

1. GlowCap What- Sends reminders for needed medication. The cap senses the quantity of meds and sends alerts to pharmacy. Blutooth and AT&T cellular based. Once activated, the plugin reminder light and cap connect to the AT&T Mobile Broadband Network, giving you both light and sound indicators for scheduled medications, vitamins and supplements.

2. ZephyrLIFE What- ZephyrLIFE™ RPM offers remote capabilities that enhance the level of medical support a patient receives while enabling them to be monitored in the comfort of their home. The BioModule™ device communicates wirelessly, via Android™*-based devices, to provide monitoring from any location where a phone network or data plan connection is available. It provides rapid updates with physiologic alerts based on Clinical-assigned thresholds and integrates with qualified third-party devices to provide measurements for weight, blood pressure, Sp02, blood glucose, and tympanic temperature.

The BioModule™ sensor is wireless and rechargeable and, when combined with the BioModule™ holder and snap ECG electrodes, becomes the BioPatch™ wireless device wireless. At home, it continuously collects a patient’s physiologic data and transmits the data every 60 seconds for the first 15 minutes, thereafter in 15 minute intervals. The BioModule™ device provides a 30-second, single-lead ECG that records either automatically or on demand when a patient’s heart or respiration rate crosses clinician-assigned thresholds.

BioPatch™ Device Features: Heart Rate 30–240 beats per minute (± 1 bpm) Sedentary Respiratory Rate 5 -50 breaths per minute (± 1 bpm) Position ± 180° (Laying, right, left, supine and prone) Activity Minutes EC38 Type 3 ECG
