Globally the population is aging. As a result, the increase in more self-care is an important development. Because of these changes, we are seeing more and more investments in the Healthcare & Life Science sector. The demand for the early detection of diseases also makes it necessary to invest in the development of smart systems.
From systems that form a device in their own right (embedded system) and a mobile application that meets the need for self-care to medical data from workflow management systems that are securely stored in a medical cloud. We develop all this on the basis of the medical standard ISO13485:2016, enabling you to quickly make the step to a medical device.
Healthcare innovations in practice
Healthcare and intelligent software are a perfect match. Let us tell you how we put healthcare innovations into practice for our clients. See our cases WISH, Prolira, MAPLe® and NightBalance below.
WISH, is a dynamic solution for an OR and cathlab. The abbreviation WISH stands for Workflow Improvement System for Hospitals. By continuously measuring the use of instruments and equipment, the WISH sensors detect the relevant steps in an operation procedure. Deep learning algorithms, real-time updates and Artificial Intelligence accurately determine the end time of the procedure. All subsequent operations can be dynamically planned or rescheduled.
By standardizing data format (HL7 FHIR), authentication (OAuth2) and deployment (containers), WISH can be easily integrated into an existing hospital infrastructure. WISH's own application enables use on desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets and smart screens. WISH can also be integrated on an existing interface. ISO-27001 and NEN-7510.
Prolira is the world's first objective medical device to detect delirium, acute cerebral failure. Prolira defines delirium as 'a potentially fatal medical emergency that increases the risk of prolonged cognitive impairment (dementia), results in longer hospital stays and contributes directly to higher healthcare costs'. The Prolira DeltaScan supports earlier and improved delirium detection. The technological solution is based on the Miami System-On-Module (SoM). A TOPIC ecosystem offers compact, turnkey solutions for powerful embedded systems. Solid product innovation from architecture to CE certification.
Precise diagnosis of pelvic floor dysfunctions is essential for targeted and effective treatment. MAPLE® provides targeted biofeedback from individual muscles on different sides and depths of the pelvic floor. The MAPLE® probe - equipped with 24 electrodes - performs a targeted three-dimensional EMG analysis of the pelvic floor and implements all measurements and stimulation data processing. With a wireless connection to an iPad and a High Definition Interface, the activity of the entire pelvic floor can be seen at a glance.
Sleeping on one’s back is often the cause of the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS), also known as (sleeping) apnea. This involves disturbed breathing during sleep, which can lead to breathing stops. The software and electronics are fully co-developed by us. Usability along with patient-friendly and user-friendly design are essential here. Our work is also distinguishable by its digital circuit and PCB design. Embedded software and development of a low-power ARM microcontroller and OS-free costfare, with test applications based on Python. Finally, everything is completely based on ISO13485:2016 and NightBalance complies with CE Class I Medical Device.
