Students behind new sensor for COPD patients

Engineering students from Aarhus University have developed a new sensor system that is able to monitor the oxygen saturation in patients with COPD at home. The purpose is to improve rehabilitation programmes and avoid costly medical examinations and hospitalisation.

Small sensors tell about the condition of buildings

Researchers from Aarhus University are developing a new method for monitoring buildings. With small sensors collecting information about vibrations, the researchers are able to predict damages and collapse with a precision unknown until now.
