The first accurate, portable and easy-to-manage pulse oximeter located on the user´s mobile for the prevention and monitoring of COPD disease

Project description

Innovation for COPD prevention

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has persistent respiratory symptoms and airflow limitation, and it represents one of the leading causes of casualties worldwide. The common method of prevention is to measure oxygen level in the blood. However, continuous monitoring of oxygen saturation requires specific devices. The EU-funded i4case project proposes an innovative smart solution integrated with a small and easy-to-manage pulse oximeter and data processing platform. The i4case is installed on the patient’s mobile and connected with the physician for 24-hour follow-up. The solution aims to reduce COPD respiratory crises by 70 % and direct and indirect costs by 40 %. The product will expand after gaining CE medical device approval.
