Check App is part of the iWellCOM project which alongside a group of companies (Teze Mechatronics Srl, ITL Srl, TPI Snc, and Synergies CAD Instruments Ltd) has received funding of circa € 100,000 from the Lombardy Region. This funding is to support the business network in the development of a wearable device for monitoring vital functions (blood pressure, ECG, heart rate, body temperature, oximetric pulse, position).
The device, in addition to being easy to wear and lightweight, is totally operated by smartphone which is able to transmit the data detected on the patient. It can also be upgraded with the addition of measuring sensors eg. breath rate and skin conduction.
The aim is to provide a device which can do a remote check-up screening or monitoring of a patient during physical activity and/or sleep.
