Grant awarded to test new wireless approach to improve Ebola care

The Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) has received a grant from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to create a program that will use health sensors to improve the health outcomes of Ebola patients. The program is called STAMP2, short for Sensor Technology and Analytics to Monitor, Predict and Protect Ebola Patients.

In the STAMP2 program, researchers will collect patient data using Sotera Wireless’ ViSi Mobile System, which continuously monitors blood pressure, pulse rate, electrocardiogram (ECG), blood oxygenation level, respiration rate, and skin temperature from a wearable sensor system with a wristworn screen.
