A local inflammatory response of the knee is common after surgery (e.g. arthroscopy, replacement) or injury. The common symptoms are swelling, stiffness of the joint, redness & warmth around the knee. During the rehabilitation it is of utmost importance to monitor the inflammatory to enhance recovery. At the moment it is not possible to measure the magnitude of the inflammatory response other than by eye or by a trained physiotherapist. Therefore, Imec wants to develop a wearable device to measure the common symptoms of the local inflammatory response. In this project, you will try different sensors and test which ones are the most suitable to measure the inflammatory response. You will test the hardware, setup experiments and analyze the data.
We offer you an experienced multi-disciplinary team in the field of sensor technology, algorithm development and strong connection to clinical practice. With access to all the necessary equipment to rapidly alter your designs.
