The Heart Foundation is awarding nearly 1.9 million euros to the development of smart watches. These are smartwatches that can detect a cardiac arrest as well as alert emergency services. Very important, because many people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital have no witnesses. And then calling 112 is also not possible. These kinds of technological solutions can save lives!

The money goes to two research projects, one led by the Radboudumc, Niels van Royen and one led by the Technical University of Eindhoven. Companies also participate in the research.

The project led by researcher Niels van Royen, theme Vascular damage stated the following: Technology saves lives! Help after a cardiac arrest now often comes too late for a large group of people. With solutions that enable quick help, we can prevent many deaths and neurological damage from cardiac arrest.

Niels is proud to be part of this consortium, initiated by Judith Bonnes, theme Vascular damage, to develop a wrist band for early detection of cardiac arrest. Together with Erasmus, Reinier de Graaf and Corsano Health.
