Nov. 10, 2004 – Nexense, a U.S.- and Israel-based developer of digital microsensors, has created a biosensor platform for monitoring vital signs, according to a news release.
The platform, based on Nexense’s patented method of measuring temperature, acceleration, pressure, distance and other parameters, can be adapted and integrated into existing medical imaging systems to enhance performance. Nexense said in the release it is working with a medical company to develop a triggering device for magnetic resonance imaging and other scanning equipment for real-time, three-dimensional images of any organ without the risks of a catheter-based procedure.
The three-year-old company said its platform could be used for seat-occupancy detection in a smart air-bag system or to notify parents of a child left alone in a vehicle. The company also seeks applications in aviation and security.
