$4.2m project with GE would develop air transport vital-signs patch

The Nano-Bio Materials Consortium (NBMC) announced this week that it has launched a project with GE Research to develop a medical-grade wireless patch that monitors the vital signs of medical patients during emergency air transport.

The device would advance medical care coordination, records management and patient outcomes in aeromedical evacuation and help drive advances in consumer-based telehealth, according to the Milpitas, Calif.-based consortium. The 24-month project is funded at $4.22 million by the consortium, GE Research, the State of New York, State University of New York at Binghamton, DuPont and UES.
