Unobtrusive printed piezoelectric sensors for non-invasive biosignal monitoring

Project description

New sensors for cardiovascular disease monitoring

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. Innovations for their prevention, monitoring and treatment are extremely important. Most recently, the focus has been on monitoring solutions such as biosignal sensors to detect signs of cardiovascular diseases earlier and commence treatment sooner. Unfortunately, current biosignal sensors are too large, obtrusive and costly for widespread use. The EU-funded UNOPIEZO project will address this by developing ultra-thin piezoelectric polymer based biosignal sensors. The sensors will use printed electronics fabrication technologies. These sensors will be unobtrusive, energy- and cost-efficient and safer for the environment while also being more accurate.
