Scientists from MIT have made sensor-tablet
Have you ever been at a reception at the therapist The doctor first takes the Stethoscope and starts to listen to your heart and lungs, for the presence of a heart murmur or rales in the lungs, if not, then the doctor examines something different, something more informative. Looks mouth, looking tongue etc.
The stethoscope is involved in medical practice since the 19th century, and are still the standard with regular examinations. Researchers from mit, however, has developed a sensor that can measure vital signs from inside, once there he will be placed. The package is in a silicone capsule and it has a size of almonds he is capable of doing both short-term and long-term diagnostics.
In addition, in hospitals, this widget would be useful when escorting military missions and sporting events.
The field of medical sensors is developing quite dynamically in recent years. In addition, electronic stethoscopes and electrical systems of the MTS, we already have lots of custom, wearable devices, bracelets, watches that can track heart rate, pulse and a lot of different parameters of the body. These wearable sensors can Internet channels to inform the doctor about any irregularities observed in the body of the patient.
Scientists from mit, however, indicate that these methods require contact with the skin and can be very unpleasant for patients, burn victims, for example hard to imagine the presence of sensors on the skin. Through a sensor for hospitals, they sought to create something to avoid such contact.
"What we have done with our technology, it`s just fantastic, we had a lot of work to determine the components that can be swallowed," says Giovanni Traverso, a researcher at the Koch Institute at Massachusetts Institute of technology. The microphones are very small, similar to that used in phones that can record what is happening in the body inside, they can pinpoint with great accuracy the rhythms of the heart and respiratory arrest patients .
The microphone and at the same time and the detector does well in analyzing the engineering of sound waves from the heart and lungs, analyzing together with other sounds that come from the gastrointestinal tract. Scientists have developed a special algorithm that will sort the sound and share them on individual systems in the body. The signal from the sensor can be captured by the device receiver at a distance of three meters around the patient, and the capsule may remain in the stomach a day or two. Anyone who requires longer to swallow more than one sensor.
