Minimally Invasive Sensor Compatible with Mobile Phones for Post-Operative Patient Care

Gentag, The CORE Institute and Third Technology Capital Investors have unveiled a fully integrated wireless monitoring kit that is suitable for use in post-surgery applications and can be used with Near Field Communications (NFC) cell phones.

The kit will help patients to monitor swelling either inside casts or the operated area using their mobile phones after being discharged from the hospital. This self monitoring is also known as compartment syndrome monitoring. This will help enhance patient care and save on costs incurred on post operation care

The technology uses an NFC-MEMS, ultra-linear hybrid chip with 0.1°C temperature accuracy and 1mm mercury (Hg) and designed under the guidance of the US orthopedics surgeons headed by Dr. Roy Sanders and Dr. David Jacofsky, president of Florida Orthopedic Institute and chairman of The CORE Institute respectively.

The device is minimally invasive, and helps determine the temperature and pressure in the operated area. These features help reduce hospital stay and complications enabling any problems to be detected early.

It can be used in post operative monitoring, compartment syndrome monitoring, monitoring of bed sores and back pressure, and checking increased pressure in casts.
