WELMO (Wearable Electronics for Effective Lung Monitoring)

Artec Design will participate in WELMO – a research project funded by the European Union. It is 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 can be combined, processed and linked with specific clinical outcome by applying innovative algorithms. The impact and, acceptances usability of the proposed solution will be validated in a realistic setup through the execution of excessive validation studies. Finally a business sustainability study will be carried out, aiming to the mid-term exploitation of the proposed solution.

During the project, Artec Design will contribute to the development of WELMO electronics, housings as well as the production of the sensors.

EMVCo Certification for Contactless Payments

Ridango, a transport ticketing systems provider operating in several European countries, has been certified by EMVCo to accept bank card payments in one of their most popular ticket validator models. Artec Design has been supporting the process from the beginning by making the device compliant to EMV requirements and improving the manufacturing pipeline to comply with the payment terminal quality management standards.

Tallinn will be the first city to benefit from the certification, as contactless payments with MasterCard and Visa cards will be launched during Q4 2018. For further information, please read the news report from Ridango’s webpage.

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 biochemical 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.
