This year, the IVAM High-Tech Summit in Dortmund is all about sustainability. On May 5, 2022, companies and research institutes will present latest developments, products and applications in eight sessions at the face-to-face event in the “Dortmunder U”. The CiS Research Institute will be present in 2 sessions of the English-language conference.
In the session “Sustainable Approaches in Medical Technology – An IVAM Focus Group Session”, Dr. Olaf Brodersen will report at 14:10 on cuffless blood pressure monitoring with a single optical sensor. The sensor developed can be worn in the ear, which provides numerous physiological benefits for signal quality and stability, as well as making it comfortable to wear on a daily basis. In addition to blood pressure, other vital signs such as heart rate, heart rate variability and blood oxygen saturation can be recorded.
For this cuffless, everyday wearable solution, combined with high wearing comfort and easy integration into other medical devices as well as consumer electronics, CiS Research Institute 2021 received the Innovation Award 2021 Innovation Level from Senetics Healthcare Group in the category “Innovative Product or Patent in Healthcare”.
In the session “New Approaches for a Sustainable Sensortechnology (SensorikNet)”, Prof. Thomas Ortlepp, Managing Director of the CiS Research Institute, will talk about high-precision assembly technologies for modern microsystems at 2:54 pm. The strong miniaturization and high complexity of sensors increases the demands on assembly technologies and their accuracy. Different technologies will be considered based on concrete applications. In addition to the CiS Research Institute, other Thuringian companies will present their competencies in this session. All of them are united by their membership in SensorikNet e.V., which was newly founded in Thuringia in 2021. The association networks developers and players along the entire value chain to the end user in the field of sensor technology and electronics.
The IVAM High-Tech Summit started for the first time in 2017 and offers an annual platform to learn about the latest developments in micro- and nanotechnology and to make one’s own portfolio known. This year’s High-Tech Summit will already be rung in the evening before, May 4, at the Dortmunder U with a get-together as a prelude for interesting talks, networking and discussions.
