생체 신호 모니터링

관련 제품: AS70xx

생체 신호는 신체의 기본 기능을 측정하며 일반적인 신체적 건강을 평가하는 데 활용될 수 있다. 연령, 체중, 성별 및 신체 조건에 따라 달라지는 생체 신호는 의학적 문제를 감지하거나 모니터링하는 데 유용하다. 생체 신호는 의료 환경, 댁내, 응급 상황 현장 또는 기타 장소에서 측정이 가능하다.

 

차세대 생체 신호 센서 솔루션은 크기가 더 작아지고 보다 통합형이며 다양한 연결성을 제공하고 비용이 낮아지며 여러 파라미터를 감지하고 보다 정밀한 측정을 제공하게 될 것이다. ams는 이러한 새로운 센서 제품의 개발을 지원하는 다양한 기술을 보유하고 있다. 또한, 광학 모듈은 소비자 기기 또는 의료 기기용 시스템에 쉽게 통합이 가능하다.

 

ams가 제공하는 사항은 다음과 같다:

  • 의료 파라미터의 비침습적 측정: 맥박, 심전도(ECG), 혈액 산소
  • 심전도 및 맥박에서 유도되는 추가적인 생체 신호 파라미터: 혈압, 동맥 탄성도 및 미주신경 긴장도
  • 예방 의학 프로그램의 일환으로 건강 상태를 지속적으로 모니터링
  • 광학 모듈 및 지원 알고리즘을 기반으로 하는 고도로 통합되고 비용 대비 효율적인 소형 의료용 솔루션 개발

 

Med Application - Medical Imaging

Medical Imaging

Advanced medical imaging equipment provides medical practitioners with a window into the body. The pictures that imaging equipment such as CT or PET scanners and endoscopes produce help physicians to diagnose conditions correctly and treat the patient effectively.

 

The importance of imaging means that medical practitioners are constantly calling for more detailed and accurate pictures marred by less noise and distortion.

 

This is where ams technology comes to the fore. Offering outstanding precision, high sampling speeds, low noise and high linearity, ams sensors and sensor interfaces enable medical equipment to render more accurate images with better contrast.

 

Med Application - smart therapy

Smart Therapy

The medical market is producing increasing numbers of ‘connected products’ – devices which have a wired or wireless connection to a cloud computing service, allowing for remote monitoring or management of a patient’s condition or treatment. Examples of smart therapy enabled by connected medical devices include the treatment of people suffering from diabetes, by tracking their blood glucose levels and insulin injections, or of asthmatics, to track their inhaler usage. 

 

Technologies from ams are ideal for use in products such as:

  • Smart insulin pens, using dose measurement sensors and wireless transceivers
  • Smart inhalers, using environmental sensors, compliance sensors and wireless transceivers
  • Smart pill boxes, using compliance sensors and wireless transceivers
     

Med Application - Diagnostics

Point-of-care diagnostics

Point-of-care diagnostics are performed where the patient is, rather than at a laboratory equipped with large, expensive diagnostic instruments. The provision of diagnostic services locally offers many advantages, including a shorter time to wait for results and reduced cost.

 

The keys to the design of successful point-of-care diagnostic equipment are chip-scale integration and miniaturization: this allows for a continual reduction in the cost of equipment, and allows for the provision of additional features such as connectivity in small, handheld form factors.

 

Many biometric sensing applications depend on optical technologies, which offer high sensitivity and the ability to measure multiple parameters. Various ams optical sensing technologies support the development of next-generation point-of-care diagnostics systems, including light detectors, light sources, on-wafer filter technologies and micro-optics lens systems.

 

Optical sensing products from ams are available as chips and as optical modules. The modules include both light sources and detectors, and may be easily integrated into end product designs.
