Integrated Vital Sensors

Wearable technology is booming and more and more portable electronics are being used in the fields of medicine, automotive or worker safety to ensure (patient) monitoring in everyday life.

But despite the large number of wearables, many requirements cannot be met. Certain applications assume a specific sensor or data of high quality that are not commercially available.

To ensure this, we offer individual development services for wearables that are tailored to the requirements of our customers and their application areas. Our solutions deliver reliable medical data even under difficult conditions, such as movement.

Development Example
Use case
Integration of ECG at the steering wheel/in the vehicle
  • Recording of the ECG with up to 3 channels (RR interval detection, diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmia)
  • Calculation of HR and HRV
  • Interpretation of psycho-physiological stress situations (stress detection, fatigue)
Measurement of the breathing rate in seating area
  • Stress detection, including analysis of breathing with a multi-channel breathing band
Pulse wave at gear shifter (for stress detection)
  • Analysis of the pulse wave using photophletysmography
Sensor technology in the seating (vital data analysis)
  • Ambient Assisted Living: Monitoring at home for the analysis of the heart rate, blood pressure and blood oxygen level
  • Biofeedback applications (electrodes for measurement of EMG and EDA)
Sensor technology in the seating (motion analysis)
  • Inertial sensors to detect movement and activity:
    • Seating position
    • Movement profile
    • Therapy support
  • Analysis and reconstruction of movement profile
Sensor technology in the bed (Project INSYDE)
  • Pressure ulcer prevention
  • Sleep analysis (detection of biosignals while sleeping – at home or in the sleep laboratory)
Sensor Technology in the helmet
  • Integration of biosignal measuring modules (ECG, pressure sensors, photophletysmography) in a helmet for athletes, for use in extreme environments and for worker safety
Textile-integrated sensor integration possible for other scenarios (compression shirt, holster, fitness band)  

Our Technologies and Projects



Medical grade ECG for cardiology



Heart rate and breathing for sports & lifestyle


Are you already using commercial wearables and want to evaluate the signal quality?
As an independent institute, we offer you smart test solutions for the parameters measured by wearables or apps and compare them with the given gold standards.


Touch-sensitive, textile surfaces for intelligent living and working environments



Development of a socio-technical system solution for an age-appropriate home environment that supports a healthy and independent life (e.g. determination of the ECG, oxygen saturation and creation of movement profiles).
