MEDILIGHT: New H2020 ICT Project
SignalGeneriX announces the kick-off of a three year 3.98M€ HORIZON 2020 project which is focusing on the development miniaturized smart system for light stimulation and monitoring of wound healing. The MEDILIGHT aims to provide highly miniaturized “photonic band aid” as a wearable, light weight and low cost solution in the professional wound care sector. Target applications are chronic, diabetic, decubitus, and large wounds with two goals: use the proven proliferation of skin tissue for self-healing and the antibacterial effects of the visible light spectrum. of a highly miniaturized “photonic band aid” as a wearable, light weight and low cost solution in the professional wound care sector. The MEDILIGHT system will consist of two parts: 1) a disposable wound dressing with embedded optical waveguides and integrated sensors for the delivery of light and monitoring (temperature and blood oxygen) at the wound. 2) a soft and compliant electronic module for multiple use containing LEDs, a photodiode, a controller, analog data acquisition, a rechargeable battery, and a data transmission unit.
