Projects Infant Monitoring and Communication
We have been developing comfortable, safe, attractive physiological sensors that infants can wear around the clock to wirelessly communicate their internal physiological state changes. The sensors capture sympathetic nervous system arousal, temperature, physical activity, and other physiological indications that can be processed to signal changes in sleep, arousal, discomfort or distress, all of which are important for helping parents better understand the internal state of their child and what things stress or soothe their baby. The technology can also be used to collect physiological and circadian patterns of data in infants at risk for developmental disabilities.
