SPYRAS develops ‘Smart Mask’ to track wearer’s respiratory patterns
SPYRAS was one of 800 businesses selected amongst 8000 applicants for the Innovate UK “business-led innovation in response to global disruption” award, proposing a sensor that would fit into any mask and connect to a mobile app for users to visualise their respiratory function as they wear the mask. The devices were then tested at the Medical Devices Testing and Evaluations Centre (MD-TEC) at the University Hospitals Birmingham Trust to compare the product against ventilator standards of testing. Using a minute breathing rate average from the SPYRAS sensors against ventilator standards, the test showed SPYRAS was able to track breathing rate at a 99.5% accuracy.
