DMEA 2022

CardioTEXTIL at the DMEA 2022 – Connecting Digital Health

April 26 to 28, 2022 in Berlin

CardioTEXTIL is a simple-to-use textile-integrated multi-channel ECG with dry electrodes.
IoT security protocols and state-of-the-art encryption methods ensure secure and privacy-friendly processing of the collected health data.

The DMEA - Connecting Digital Health - in Berlin is Europe's leading convention for the digitalization of healthcare with around 11,000 visitors and 600 exhibitors. From April 26 to 28, 2022, the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Internet Technologies CCIT will present its demonstrator CardioTEXTIL to illustrate how a wirelessly networked medical sensor application can be implemented securely and reliably.


Wireless networked ECG sensor application CardioTEXTIL protects against data misuse

Due to demographic shifts and structural changes such as the shortage of medical professionals outside large cities, telemedicine and networked sensor technology are playing an increasingly important role. Digital features analyze patient data to detect diseases earlier. For sensitive data to be protected, hardware and software manufacturers must ensure secure transmission and protection against unauthorized access or data misuse.

In the »MEDISEC« (Medical Secure Communication) project, Fraunhofer CCIT explores technological features for trustworthy medical sensor applications.

For this purpose, a research team from the Fraunhofer Institutes for Applied and Integrated Security AISEC and for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed the long-term ECG device CardioTEXTIL, which meets the requirements for tap and tamper-proof sensor systems, taking into account the legal specifications for secure software for medical devices.
