Scientists have developed a wireless sensor for throat cough, fever, respiratory activity monitoring and diagnosis of COVID-19
The more we learn about coronovirus, the more questions arise. These comprehensive puzzles underscore the urgent need for additional data to help scientists and doctors better understand – and treat – a highly contagious and deadly disease.
Researchers at Northwestern University, along with the AbilityLab Institute of Rehab in Chicago, have developed a new wearable device to detect early signs of COVID-19 and monitor patients as the disease progresses.
The device, which can be worn around the clock, uses special sensors and artificial intelligence to reveal subtle, but potentially life-saving signals. The device continuously measures and interprets cough and respiratory activity in ways that are not possible using traditional monitoring systems.
These devices are currently being used by COVID-19 patients and healthcare professionals at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. About 25 people started using the devices two weeks ago – they are worn both in the clinic and at home, which is more than 1,500 cumulative hours and generates more than one terabyte of data.

Remember that gadgets that help control the main factors in the proper functioning of the immune system can actually help strengthen the body’s protective resources. These gadgets include controllers of sleep, stress, physiological parameters, purity and humidity. Details are in PaySpace magazine.
