Students invented movable glove factory

Being self-sufficient on healthcare items, such as disposable gloves, would facilitate healthcare. Now, BTH’s students have developed a movable glove factory that can be moved between different places where gloves are needed. During the corona pandemic, the lack of personal protective equipment e.g. protective gloves has been known. Although global production has increased by 40 […]

Smart glasses for better care

Charlotte Romare’s research focuses on smart glasses and this innovation is to be tested at the clinic.  “When caring for a patient, you can select which parameters are to be visible in the glasses, maybe ECG, blood pressure, oxygen levels or something else depending on which decision-making support is required. The glasses provide a quick overview while enabling the user to focus completely on the patient instead […]
