For many patients it appears to be difficult to take medication according to the schedule that the doctor has prescribed. Taking a pill daily at breakfast is usually still possible, but it becomes more difficult when there are schedules where the intake of medication is irregular. Or if a three-month break is inserted, after which the patient himself has to start taking the medication again. But even when patients have no complaints, suffer from side effects of the medication or simply forget it, therapy compliance is a difficult task. IoT offers a solution for this problem. There are many devices on the market that offer assistance with therapy compliance.
Evalan has contributed to a new development in the field of IoT in healthcare, namely the analysis of exhaled air to diagnose diseases. The product of Breathomix, the SpiroNose, aims to diagnose lung diseases, such as asthma, COPD and lung cancer, but also other diseases, and to have them treated more specifically. For this innovation, we developed the sensor system and the device that collects and transmits the measurement data.
A week ago, we announced that Priva acquired a stake in our spin-out smart building company bGrid. Priva is now shareholder and strategic cooperation partner. Together we anticipate an acceleration in smart building implementation and drive digital transformation in real estate.
Rebecca Clarke and Sari Ahokas have joined the management team of Amsterdam’s IoT company Evalan. Rebecca Clarke is our new Chief Operating Officer and Sari Ahokas is our Engineering Manager. With the appointment of both MT members, Evalan is preparing for international expansion of end-to-end IoT solutions.
There is a worldwide increase in the number of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) devices. IoMT appears to be of great value in medical research, monitoring, treatment and process optimization. Less pressure on caregivers An example of remote monitoring is the vMetrics TM solution developed by NASA. This device measures the heart rate, blood pressure […]
Heroic acts are not without risk. As an employer you want to protect employees as well as possible. This is possible with biometric IoT, measuring physical characteristics and linking this to an app. Soldiers and firefighters are already experimenting with it.
Many syndromes require customized treatment. This is achieved faster due to the emergence of eHealth devices. The ability to view real-time data from a patient ensures that the process can be tailored to the patient. Using data analytics, the physician can view the medical developments for each patient and give personal advice.
The rapid uptake of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), in other words biometric monitoring, offers a lot of possibilities for healthcare professionals, athletes and people with physical demanding professions. In the US, 60 percent of the healthcare organizations are using IoMT devices to measure blood pressure, brain activity and body temperature.
Wearables: we know them as the pedometers and fitness trackers. But we see the development increasingly shifting from the consumer market to healthcare. How can biometric wearables be used in healthcare? The innovations contribute to the increase of personalized care.
Evalan, an Amsterdam-based company focusing on IoT innovations, is participating in the SINTEC project (Soft Intelligence Epidermal Communication Platform). This project focuses on creating a new smart patch. This patch is made from flexible, stretchable circuit board technology and can measure important bodily functions that are sent wirelessly through the skin to a smartphone. The eight participants in the project aim for these patches to provide support in health care and the sports sector.
