An XeThru X4 sensor can be used to accurately count respirations per minute. Elderly people cared for at home can benefit from a respiration monitoring device that can keep a check on vital signs.
This article explores the challenges with existing sensor technology and answers why using XeThru UWB radar sensors is a better idea.
As part of a pilot study, a monitoring system has been implemented at the Trondheim police station where XeThru respiration sensors track breathing and movement in specific cells. The system alerts prison staff of any irregular activity in the cell in time to potentially save lives.
The X4 UWB radar SoC by Novelda is put to the test and pushed through different occupancy scenarios. The X4 UWB radar SoC from Novelda is a ground-breaking technology development that enhances all key radar operating metrics, including sensitivity, range, power economy and level of integration.
Part of the polysomnography data where measured using an XeThru UWB radar sensor in the Medical Center of Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea. The radar was installed on the ceiling at the distance of about 1.8m above the sleep bed.
They were able to identify sleep apnea states with reasonable accuracy.
Non contact fetal signals were obtained using an Xethru UWB radar sensor located at the distance of 80cm from the right side of the mother. The mother delivered a baby safely at the Medical Center in Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea. Two weeks after this video was taken.
