Onera and Verhaert receive Eurostar R&D grant to modernize sleep diagnostic and monitoring technology.
Onera and its partner Verhaert were awarded a Eurostar grant to develop a patch-based chest-attached sleep diagnostic system designed to improve the way sleep studies are performed.
The partnership’s mutual goal is to improve the way a variety of sleep disorders are diagnosed and monitored. The collaborative project DISPATCH will be a combination of Onera’s wireless analytical patch that attaches to the chest like a band-aid, and an upcoming bedside base station designed by Verhaert.
Eurostars is the most extensive international funding program for SMEs wishing to collaborate on R&D projects that create innovative products, processes, or services for commercialization.
