To overcome the healthcare system’s shortcomings during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have designed a remote sensor system to monitor non-hospitalized patients. Real-time information on vital signs and cough occurrences will be captured and transmitted to care providers to detect any deterioration immediately. This will offer inexpensive but accurate monitoring of an unlimited number of COVID- and other respiratory patients for total durations. Further to its unique ability to detect coughs, other main advantages will be high accuracy and user-friendliness, increased battery life, and low cost, originating from the advanced sensor technology and machine-learning techniques employed. Our skin patch can detect vital signs such as body temperature pulse and sleeping performance and send information to the cloud.
