Health Monitoring: A Lasting Impact

IME researchers have developed a power-efficient single-chip IC for health monitoring applications. The new chip was successfully demonstrated for wireless real-time electrogram (ECG) monitoring for 200 hours non-stop. The low power consumption feature is ideal for wireless applications to enable a more accurate assessment of a patient’s health condition. The sensor-node chip could also be designed to track other physiological signals, such as temperature, blood pressure, respiration rate and pulse oxygen reading.
