Evalan is participating in the development project SINTEC

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.

The Uppsala University in Sweden, one of the participants in the project, has developed the new printed circuit board technology for the smart patch. These patches will measure important physical functions and send them wirelessly to a smartphone through a safe, fast and streamlined transmission via fat tissue in the body. They are soft and thin, making them more comfortable than the wireless products that are now available.

Stretchable electronic patches
The new European research project has been set up by eight partners who jointly develop and test the elastic electronic patches. Evalan specializes in devising and developing IoT solutions for the healthcare sector and, within this consortium, focuses on applications of the smart patches in healthcare. The smart patches can provide support for various target groups, including patients with heart problems and rehabilitating patients.

Swedish ski team The Swedish ski team will use the smart patches to measure movements, physical exertion, strength and speed. At the same time, it is being investigated whether it can improve the performance of skiers. In addition, the smart patch will help athletes to optimize training and reduce the risk of injury. The innovative patch can be worn at any time, so that it continuously collects data and offers a safer life for athletes, patients and the elderly. The project started this month and lasts four years. The project is funded by the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program of the European Union. Henk Schwietert, CEO of Evalan, about the project: “Participation in this consortium offers the possibility to expand our portfolio of biometric IoT solutions with innovative sensor technology. Close connection with European high-tech electronics developments is a strategic priority of our company”.
