Autonomous Patch for Real-Time Detection of Infectious Disease

Project: EU project

Project Details


The A-Patch Research & Innovation project will research, innovate, push technology barriers, and demonstrate innovative use of Flexible and Wearable Electronics in the medical and well-being sectors, validate its prototype devices in lab and hospital environments (TRL 4-5). Industrial exploitation of the A-Patch applications will be clearly identified. The project will develop non-invasive autonomous wearable diagnostic patches for real-time remote monitoring of infection status. The A-Patch will use a novel intelligent hybrid sensor array with multiplexed detection capabilities to detect disease-specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the surface of the skin, enabling rapid and highly-accurate diagnosis using a small device. Product innovations for professionals and consumers will be incorporated, and benefits demonstrated. Integration of electronic devices in connected wearable, flexible and stretchable settings, low-power interconnection, compatibility with low-cost manufacturing, efficient energy scavenging and storage, functional performance, and durability will be successfully demonstrated.
