Nocturnal sweat rate sensor
Q-strip quantitatively measures sweating during sleep.
The Q-strip is a ribbon that quantitatively measures humidity. The ribbon includes two electrodes that measure the resistance between the electrodes. The values are transferred to a moisture sensor that is connected to a Printed Circuit Board. The PCB forwards the data sequentially to a database.
Sweating is known as a symptom of many diseases. Our mission is to develop an easy to use device for measuring and analyzing nocturnal sweating for medical purposes.
The Q-strip sensor can be used for a variety of purposes. At the moment we are testing and optimising the Q-strip for measuring sweat values at night. Our dream is that Q-strip will become a digital biomarker that can be used for medical purposes.
