Macawi partners IntelliLung Project
Together with 13 international partners, Macawi will contribute to the development and testing of an Artificial Intelligence Decision Support System to optimize medical ventilation of ICU patients: IntelliLung.
The decision support system will be extended with Demcon Macawi’s novel sEMG technology that can measure respiratory muscle activity continuously and non-invasively. The European Union has recently approved €6 million of funding for the IntelliLung project, coordinated by Professor Thea Koch and Dr. Jakob Wittenstein from the Dresden Technical University (EU HORIZON-HLTH-2021).
The preparations have already started, and the kick-off meeting will take place in Dresden early September 2022. We are proud to be part of this project and we look forward to working together with a fantastic team of international specialists to realize this challenging live saving technology!
