Coronavirus pandemic | Hong Kong fights COVID-19 using device developed by IIT alumnus’ startup
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Hong Kong is using artificial intelligence (AI)-based remote monitoring system to track the health of COVID-19 patients and detecting symptoms of disease in quarantined people, The Times of India reported.
The device named Everion is developed by a Boston-based start-up Biofourmis, founded by an IIT-Chennai alumnus Kuldeep Rajput, the report said.
Everion, which includes biosensor, was developed five years ago to monitor heart failure patients. It is worn on the arm and can measure over 20 different biomarkers in real-time like oxygen levels, respiratory patterns, temperature and heart rate.
