European project develops ECG with wireless patch

22A2139Researchers from Fraunhofer IZM, Germany, together with 31 partners from industry and research, have developed a stretchable and wireless patch that makes it possible to conduct diagnostically relevant cardiac monitoring in everyday life.

This could reduce the number of inpatient examinations required for high-risk patients and will also boost the semiconductor value chain for the medical sector in Europe through the development of new tools, methods and processes for series production.
