Smart Health Patch 2.0 -
Enabling the next generation of multifunctional medical skin patches with printed electronics (joint talk)
Smart Healthcare demands smart medical devices.
Wearable skin patches allow for comprehensive patient monitoring at medical grade accuracy, improving patient care to become more individualized and connected. Printed Electronics technology is a key enabler to smart health patches - allowing the creation of thin, flexible and lightweight sensing components and full solutions that increase the comfort of wear while allowing long-term vital sight monitoring.
Throughout this presentation Henkel Printed Electronics and Accensors will showcase latest printed electronic materials and sensing technologies to shape the next generation of smart health patches.

Medical Reliable Cardiovascular Health Monitoring Using New Wearable Technology
Current wearable sensor technologies provide limited and less reliable health parameters based mainly on heart rate measurement. Any reliable cardiovascular health assessment requires blood pressure measurements. Many attempts had been made to provide blood pressure measurements using commercially available wearable sensors like in smart watches. However, all attempts failed in measuring blood pressure as required by medical standards. On the other hand, FDA cleared Cardiex\AtCor medical technology became the ‘gold standard’ in measuring non-invasively heart and arterial pressure parameters reflecting cardiac and arterial health.
The challenge is to adapt such medical technology into the wearable sensor devices. This involves examining different and new sensors. It also involve new methods of sensor signals based on cardiovascular physiology to extract clinically significant central arterial pressure parameters. This presentation will review current health wearable technologies, challenges in providing reliable cardiovascular health assessment, and Cardiex current development of medical wearable devices to provide clinical heart and arterial health assessments.

Smart Insoles for Clinical Research : a Problem-Solving Approach to Deliver Value with Continuous Mobility Assessment
Bringing a drug to market is long and difficult. Studies estimate that the clinical trial process lasts 9 years and costs $1.3B on average. Clinical trials are conducted in multiple phases, with cost and complexity increasing from Phase I to Phase III. Despite the time and capital invested in trials, only 1 in 10 drugs that enter Phase I of a clinical trial will be approved by the FDA.
There is Large medical need to evaluate to treat the physical deterioration of physical status. A growing number of patients with mobility impairments lacks accurate tools to diagnose, monitor expensive evolutive diseases and intervene efficiently.
Gait is the simplest and most actionable biomarker to monitor multiple diseases but vastly underutilized as a biomarker or outcome measure because gait analysis is often not high quality when assessed in the clinic.Clinical gait tests, today, are used to identify mobility disorders, measure the efficacy of a therapeutic treatment. This is done in a controlled setting at sites. However, the technologies or design used present strong limitations. Episodic assessments, sometimes observational, don't generate sufficient sensitive data to demonstrate subtle changes.
The FeetMe solution allows the collection of validated gait data at site with the Insoles, and in the same accurate way in the patients daily life allowing continuous recording of gait data.
