Biosensing plays an important role in the advancement of patient care. Understanding a variety of technology building blocks allows a development team to create unique and sensitive sensors from the best-suited technology for the application. Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) can draw from a wide variety of specialists to develop your sensor.
Applying sophisticated digital signal processing techniques, SwRI engineers developed a seismic heart rate monitor for the U.S. Army. The device identifies a heartbeat quickly, through multiple layers of clothing.
This module-based handheld device was developed as a platform for environmental monitoring. The sensor module shown here records wind speed, humidity, temperature, radiation, and barometric pressure.
