IoT: Tap into the Strategic Value of Data 

The Power of Data

We’ve all heard that “knowledge is power” or that “knowledge is a competitive advantage”. Still, to arrive at knowledge there are a few earlier steps that need to be taken.   The first building block towards knowledge is data, which (when organized) provides us with useful information, thus leading over time to knowledge and insight.   “The […]

Measuring frequently with IoT adds more value

Frequent measurements with IoT

Continuous low-resolution monitoring with IoT yields more value than infrequent accurate measurements. How does this work? In this article, we highlight how continuous data collection can lead to better work processes.

New muscle analyzer system for sarcopenia

New muscle analyzer system for sarcopenia

Evalan started the MAS project together with the Uppsala University in Sweden and the MUMC in Maastricht. During this project a muscle analyzer system will be developed that measures the density of muscles by means of microwave technology.

Evalan develops respiratory rate sensor for European project NextPerception

Evalan develops respiratory rate sensor for European project NextPerception

A new European project, NextPerception, is developing intelligent sensing technology for the next generation of solutions for the healthcare and automotive industry. On the one hand, the focus of the project is on patient-centered care, in which improved monitoring systems aim at early detection and prevention of deterioration in health. On the other hand, sensor solutions are being developed for the automotive industry to improve pedestrian safety and automated driving. During this project, Evalan focuses on the first use case, healthcare, and is developing a respiratory rate sensor specifically for cardiac care.

New IoT development project for monitoring intake tube feeding

New IoT development project for monitoring intake tube feeding

The European innovation program Eureka has started a new project, of which Evalan is part. For 3 years, 18 organizations from different countries will work working together intensively on this FoodFriend project to develop technologies that can better measure the influence of food on the human body. This concerns both the intake of food and its absorption by the body.
