Philips, in collaboration with the Radboud University Medical Center, in the Netherlands, has presented a technological prototype wearable to support patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

After the patient leaves the hospital, the device monitors respiration, heart rate, heart rate variability or physical activity of the patient. This data is stored on the Philips HealthSuite digital platform and, via the eCareCoordinator app, are shared with family members, doctors and the patient himself through his mobile device.

Likewise, the company has ensured that it is working to create a set of application programming interfaces (APIS) so developers can create innovative applications for hospitals and healthcare systems.
