Human Health Monitoring (HHM)

Biocompatible, non invasive and non obtrusive piezoelectric patches can remotely monitor the health of a subject
  • Heart Frequency
  • Blood Pressure
  • Body Temperature
  • Psycho-physical Stress level
  • Muscular Activity
  • Spasms and Cramps
  • Swallowing Analysis
  • Sleep Monitoring (Eyes movement)
  • Prosthetics

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)

Single or multiple sensors system can provide information about the health of structural parts, detecting their natural vibrations and eventual changes
  • Natural Resonance Frequency
  • Change of shape
  • Shock and Collisions
  • Damage Detection
Ultra-thin and non invasive flexible sensors can be embedded into structural parts or mounted above their surfaces

Sport and Fitness Applications

Extremely efficient piezoelectric sensors can provide Key Performance Indicators about athletes or sport equipment during the activities
  • Number of Specific Act (Frequency)
  • Mechanical Energy Released
  • Real-time Performance Analysis
  • Parameters Trend
  • Continuous Feedback
Sensing system can be fully integrated in the equipment, in smart clothes or as wearable patch

Internet of Things (IoT)

Embedded Sensors can provide multiple information about
  • Natural Resonance
  • Frequency Change of vibrations
  • Shock and Collisions
  • Leakage Detection
  • Motion Detection
Ultra-thin flexible sensors can be embedded into specific structure or wrapped around it

Energy Harvesting

Flexible Piezoelectric harvesters can be properly designed to scavenge energy from the environment, supplying sensors or small electrical devices. Energy from:
  • Wind
  • Vibrations
  • Water motion
  • Gas flows
  • Mechanical movement
  • Human body
Every piezoelectric device can generate energy in the range of hundred of mWatts

Industy 4.0

We can develop system as a set of tools used to measure one or more parameters to identify changes along machinery life.
  • Natural Resonance Frequency
  • Change of frequency
  • Shock and Collisions
  • Damage Detection
Monitoring these parameters help identifying early faults like imbalance, bearing faults

Aero-dynamics

Piezoelectric flexible flags can be mounted on aerodynamics structure to analyze and study its performance
  • Fluid velocity
  • Fluid pressure
  • Stability/instability of the flow
  • Turbulences
