The BMBF sponsored project “FLEXMAX” was launched April 1st, 2018.
Flexible sensor foils offer crucial respiratory monitoring signals of prematurely-born babies to doctors. The project´s focus is on the development of flexible sensor foils that adjust well to erratic or fluctuating surface forms. This will be verified in two different applications using medical demonstrators. Within the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung “Smart Health” sponsoring program the project proposal has been designated high priority and 2.1 mio. euros have been made available for the research and development of the medical demonstrators.
IMS CHIPS is developing customized evaluation ICs to control and analyze the sensor signals as well as integrating its expertise in technologies to embed ultra-thin chips into the foil system.
