Challenge:
PneumaCare, a University of Cambridge spin-out, developed a non-contact lung function measurement technology. Their highly innovative approach used structured-light analysis to assess 3D movement of the chest. PneumaCare asked Plextek to take their early prototype system through to manufacture, including regulatory approvals.

Approach:
A commercial system would involve solving numerous issues: lighting conditions, stereoscopic camera alignment, calibration, etc. We undertook an initial technology feasibility study, IP search and manufacturing assessment, and recommended the most cost-effective development approach. Our multi-discipline team worked closely with PneumaCare’s founders to realise their ambition.

Outcome:
Since launching this product PneumaCare has won numerous medical device innovation prizes and received praise from leading Respiratory and Paediatric specialists.
