Medical Data Communication and Sensor Systems

Smart Mobile Solutions for Health and Lifestyle

At a Glance


Our focus is on solutions for communication and sensor systems in medicine and health care.

Products and Projects

We develop and implement miniaturized and mobile sensor units, algorithms for biosignal processing and motion analysis as well as standardized medical communication protocols.


One focus of our work is contract research. We participate in publicly funded projects and provide services to customers in the field of research and development.




Touch-sensitive Textile Surfaces for Intelligent Home and Work Environments

Press Release

Digitization in medical engineering

At MEDICA 2017 the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is presenting the MCube microscope system for the automatic pre-analysis of malaria pathogens, as well as optical 3D techniques for improved orientation in endoscopic views and the CardioSHIRT with integrated multichannel ECG.


Mobile Performance Diagnostics with ELECSA®

As a mobile, non-invasive alternative to blood lactate measurement, ELECSA® supports you in the training control.


Wearable Technology – Intelligent Software and Hardware by Fraunhofer IIS

Since July 2016, the innovative high-tech product ambiotex shirt can be purchased at the ambiotex web shop. The shirt has a high wearing comfort and allows an effective training by the evaluation of vital data in real time.


Mobile Textile-based Multichannel ECG: CardioTEXTIL

Based on our “FitnessSHIRT“ technology, the “CardioTEXTIL“ was developed in cooperation with the High Performance Center Electronic Systems (Leistungszentrum Elektroniksysteme, LZE). The integration of “ELECSA®“, an ion-selective biosensor, provides additional options for mobile measurements of the physical condition.
