During the Covid-19 pandemic, the healthcare system faces a shortage in hospital bed occupancy and the healthcare professionals resource. It's required medical devices like trackers, blood pressure monitors, thermometers and scales to take care and ensure the improvement of the patients' condition.
To support healthcare practitioners in this period, Chronolife has developed a product named Keesense. This is a smart T-shirt integrated with multiple sensors and a smartphone app for remote monitoring of the patients. This device is marked with the CE class Ila and can monitor 6 physiology parameters electrocardiogram, physical activity, abdominal and thoracic breathing, skin temperature, and pulmonary impedance to detect edemas. This T-shirt is washable and easy to use.
Servier has officially collaborated with Chronolife to carry out the experiment on remote monitoring patients with chronic heart failure. They announced on their press release on 23rd July 2020.
