Winner of the EUvsVirus Hackathon: Link to pitch description:
We give nurses superpowers, by doing a 100 check-ups in the time that it used to take 1. All while being far from the patient, staying out of risk.
Our solution enables a highly scalable patient monitoring system that minimizes physical contact between nurses and patients, which also leads to smaller shortage of protective gear. Instead of occasional visits, our device measures vital parameters real-time and uploads each patient’s data into a central server. With the help of our dashboard, doctors and nurses can oversee hundred times more patients, while our automatic alert functionalities make it possible to diagnose deteriorating cases instantly and to reach quicker reaction times.
In the span of 48 hours, we have created a fully-functional pair of 3D printed glasses, allowing patients to initiate frequent measuring of their vital signs, all by themselves. These include body temperature, oxygen saturation and respiratory rate, the key values nurses regularly check on coronavirus patients.
We have bought the sensors ourselves and designed the 3D printed glasses frame to blend them into one device. This fast-prototyping only cost us 21€, and mass production would lower the cost of a device even more.
