Presentation Hall B2 SEMICON EUROPA > SMART MedTech > The Digitization of Preventive Healthcare

13:05-13:30 h | Hall B2 Inspiration Hub, Booth B2.261

Subjects: SEMICON EUROPA

Speaker: PhD Filip Frederix (ams, INS)

Chairman: Navid Shahriari (Business Developer, imec, Connected Health Solutions)

Type: Presentation

Speech: English

Healthcare costs are rising due to an aging population and with decreasing funds from governments and insurance companies, our society needs to implement efficient healthcare solutions and more critically, pay more attention to prevention, early diagnosis and remote monitoring. This explains the recent rise of consumer health solutions. In this abstract, we will discuss the requirements related to the sensor technologies in medical-grade devices. We will demonstrate various technology approach options in the field of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics and portable consumer health devices. To take full advantage of preventative care, it is important that people are able to frequently monitor their health status. Research shows that monitoring tools must be easy to use, non-evasive and connected, with the ultimate goal is for these tools to be used at home or at the GP´s office. POC testing or rapid tests have the potential to solve these challenges. A relevant example is the commonly used home pregnancy tests, which are based on the lateral flow testing principle. At ams, we developed an electronic/optical readout for these tests to boost the sensitivity and enable multiplex capabilities. We will highlight a first prototype of this technology and its performance. We will also present the VivaVita, which is a result of a corporation between Joysys and ams. We will explain the working principle, the specifications and the applications. The VivaVita device allows generating medical quality data at a consumer level or outside a hospital setting. The VivaVita measures heart rate variability, ECG and blood pressure with a small, portable and fully integrated device. It is operated in a consumer friendly way, it is cost-effective and enables wireless data transfer and wireless charging. The core of the device is the AS7026 module, which is a low power, fully integrated optical module that allows for photo plethysmography (PPG) measurements in a reliable way.
