Sensors generate a very low power electro-magnetic signal
Focuses directly on movement of living tissue
Algorithms detect heart rate, respiration and other vital info
The computer simulation shown here demonstrates, via the use of color, the large change in signal (note the color differentiation) that we see between more dense/deflated lungs and less dense/inflated lungs. As the lungs, or other tissues like the heart, expand and contract the tissues themselves absorb more or less of our electromagnetic (EM) field. We sense this change in the absorption of the EM field as it occurs and it is this fundamentally different measurement technique that allows us to monitor the expansion and contraction of tissues within the body without any contact.
Importantly, this technique allows us to monitor the physical characteristics of the organs themselves and not the secondary or tertiary effects caused by the activity of the organs. This means that we have an inherent signal advantage over other non-contact methodologies which is most readily apparent in greater accuracy over a wider range of scenarios. Our proprietary data acquisition technique also allows us to clearly see relative tidal volume as well as the slope and depth of each inhale and exhale of the lungs which makes analysis of respiratory diseases ideally suited for our technology.
