Abstract

The project aims to develop an electronic hardware to acquire signals and process data in a Electrical Impedance Tomography module, with new functional and performance characteristics. With this new platform, Timpel will be able to increase the use of its Electrical Impedance Tomography technology and accelerate the technology adoption curve. The higher resolution and speed, the acquisition in parallel of the ECG signal, smaller size, power consumption and cost will also contribute to the module to be better accepted as an integrated device into ventilators, and vital signs monitors existing in the ICU and Surgical Centers.
