Piezoskin collaborates on the BENEFIT Innonetwork projects

BENEFIT (BEnessere Nutrizionale e FIsico con Tecnologie indossabili) is a project funded by the Regione Puglia under the program Innonetwork. Piezoskin is collaborating on a 18-months project with a consortium of private companies and medical practices specialising in healthcare. The final objective of the project is the development of an innovative system, based on piezoelectric biocompatible and wearable sensors, able to detect the dysphagia symptoms in real time and by a wireless technology. The task of Piezoskin concerns mainly the design, the fabrication and the electromechanical testing of the piezoelectric transducers, in close cooperation with the team of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, in Lecce.
