Innovative respiratory disease monitoring
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an inflammatory disease of the lungs that represents a rising threat, with estimates pointing to it becoming one of the main causes of death by 2030. COPD, as other chronic respiratory conditions, requires accurate disease monitoring. However, despite its importance, accurate monitoring is lacking, resulting in inadequate treatment and high costs to healthcare systems. The EU-funded SenseGuard project proposes a reliable solution generated from a pioneering nanosensor-based technology that is unique for respiratory disease monitoring. The solution consists of an advanced wireless, wearable tool that allows continuous and non-invasive monitoring of lung functions based on patients’ normal breathing. The project aims to finalise the solution and confirm it in clinical studies.
