Enhanced sensing for digital health
The 21st century has brought a number of completely new healthcare challenges: increasing numbers of chronic diseases, including cancer, COPD, asthma, and diabetes in an aging population; and broad changes to both environment and lifestyle that amplify the occurrence, consequences and cost of such diseases.
Digital health infrastructure recently received a major push forward to address these healthcare challenges. It not only automatizes sharing patient data, accessing sites of care and simplifying the payment flow. It will also further empower patients in everyday life to monitor their own health from their homes, get their drugs administered without a healthcare provider required to be present, and obtain feedback on drug delivery and the course of the disease. Such functions are implemented and enabled by portable, wearable and interactive devices that use sensors to monitor the patient.
Sensirion is actively supporting this developing ecosystem with sensors built to address these needs: measuring patient air flow, drug flow and patient breath gases. As this journey has only just begun, we are working to extend the technologies and sensors offered in digital health.
