Cluster project M3Infekt successfully completed: Decentralized monitoring of respiration in Covid 19 patients


Press release of Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS from

The goal of the cluster project M3Infekt, initiated by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, was to develop the technical basis for more comprehensive vital monitoring and care of Covid-19 patients outside of intensive care units, to relieve the burden on this critical infrastructure. Now that the project has been completed, the participating institutes have presented their results. The Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS from Dresden made an important contribution to the development of a mobile and powerful spirometer with the help of its advanced CMUT ultrasonic sensor technology. The device for analyzing lung function is part of an AI-controlled, decentralized patient monitoring system and will be further developed in future projects.
