Philips Debuts Wearable Computing Device For COPD Patients

Royal Philips COPD Infographic

Philips and Nijmegen NL-based Radboud university medical center are debuting a wearable computing device prototype to support patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Once a COPD patient has left the hospital, a wearable diagnostic prototype collects data day and night – including physical activity/inactivity, respiratory indicator, heart rhythm and heart rate variability. That data is then sent via the cloud to a digital health management platform, where it is shared with appropriate care providers.

Philips is also working to create a suite of open application programming interfaces (APIs) that can be used by developers to create applications for hospitals and health systems.
