The Art of Technology
Idea to Product
Artec Design provides all services needed to cover an electronic product‘s complete production cycle, from product idea to final product, all under the same roof.
With over two decades of experience, Artec Design has strived to become a long-term partner for its customers by innovating at the intersection of electronics, software, FPGAs and industrial design; and by offering prototyping and manufacturing.
WELMO (Wearable Electronics for Effective Lung Monitoring)
Artec Design has successfully finished WELMO – a research project funded by the European Union. It was dedicated to the development and validation of a wearable vest with integrated low-cost and low-power miniaturized sensors allowing continuous recording of lung sounds and electrical impedance tomography (EIT) examination. The sound and image signals were combined, processed and linked with specific clinical outcome by applying innovative algorithms. The impact and, acceptances usability of the proposed solution were validated in a realistic setup through the execution of excessive validation studies. Finally a business sustainability study was carried out, aiming to the mid-term exploitation of the proposed solution.
During the project, Artec Design contributed to the development of WELMO electronics through schematic design and PCB layout design, firmware development for a Cortex-M uC, industrial design as well as the production of the sensors.
E-Paper Devices at the University of Tartu
The University of Tartu (UT) has chosen Artec Design’s e-paper devices for room signage at the new Delta building. The university displays room schedules on the e-paper devices, which includes the room numbers, lectures as well as the names of lecturers in both Estonian and English.
The installation includes 13.3-inch e-paper devices as well as a central management server (CMS), which makes it possible to easily monitor and configure all devices via a single Web interface.

Myoton at the International Space Station
The digital palpation device Myoton, which was developed by Artec Design, has reached the International Space Station (ISS), as part of the project “The Muscle Tone in Space”. The goal of the project is to investigate the long-term effects to the biomechanical properties of muscles when exposed to spaceflight environment. The results could lead to the development of new strategies for alternative treatments on Earth, as well as in space.
