Eupnea is developing a sensor
for monitoring the respiratory rate
Our sensor aims at detecting respiratory rate which is
considered to be the most reliable vital parameter that
changes fastest in disease development
Eupnea AS has high ambitions to develop radically improved monitoring equipment, that can potentially reduce resource usage and change
the way in which today’s medicine investigates, monitors and treats patients.
Eupnea AS is an entrepreneurial company established in 2016 composed of a heterogeneous group of highly educated individuals with broad
experience in various fields. The company has come up with a working prototype that can easily, cheaply and securely monitor the respiratory rate, non-invasively, in real time.
Our concept is to combine commercially available technology that is mass produced into a single sensor module, capable of accurately measuring the respiratory rate.
The sensor measures the movement of the lower chest area, and using a novel algorithm it estimates the respiratory rate. Additonally, the sensor will transmit data using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and we aim for a product that will be easily integrated into clinical information systems, as well as a functional stand-alone product. Our goal is to produce a sensor that is comfortable to wear, and easy to use with minimum of training.
The final product will be cheap to produce, and the value lies in an effective and precise algorithm that gives reliable results to medical professionals.
Eupnea consists of a young, ambitious group of people. For further assistants in strategy planning, technical challenges and in the complex field of pulmonary medicine, Eupnea has a network of advisors and scientists who has the experience and academic credibility we deem necessary for success.
