"The digital platform that we are developing together with Getinge will help health care professionals to better track a number of endorse-based risk factors. Based on data from the platform, solutions can be developed to reduce the risk of infections in surgical environments. This in turn can contribute to less human suffering and reduced costs for health care," says Johan Kristensson, team manager and business manager at Semcon.
By using a number of sensors in an operating theater, the digital platform can collect different types of data, which can both be viewed in real time and analyzed afterwards. This creates a better understanding of what is happening in the operating room and how to better work to reduce health care related infections.
A prototype will soon be tested in an operating room at a hospital. The project is based on a number of pre-studies that Semcon has done together with Getinge. Meanwhile, Semcon is contributing with expertise in embedded sensorics and UX.
