Uppsala University Sintec project Coordinator

UPPSALA UNIVERSITY

Uppsala University is the highest-ranking comprehensive research university in Sweden and among the top 20 in Europe.

In the project, the University is represented by two groups from the Department of Engineering Sciences: the Microsystem Technology (MST) programme and the Microwaves in Medical Engineering Group, MMG.

  • MST programme has dedicated SoA laboratory for elastomers and microfluidic stretchable electronics, as well as several laboratories for microfluidics in life science, medical technology, environmental and space applications. MST is the second largest stakeholder in the micro- and nanoprocessing area of the 2,000 sqm MSL cleanroom at the Angstrom Laboratory, which is part of the Myfab national cleanroom infrastructure consortium (providing access to Lund Univ’s, KTH’s and Chalmers’ cleanroom laboratories). By a generous donation by the KAW foundation, MST is responsible for the back-end line in the cleanroom, which provides most of the advanced microfabrication and packaging that will be needed in the project.
  • The Microwaves in Medical Engineering Group, MMG, is a leading group in Sweden in Microwave sensors and intra-body communication. MMG has developed novel concepts of non-invasive sensors for monitoring osteoporosis and using human fat tissue as communication landscape for establishing large on/in body sensor networks. MMG has full-fledged characterization and testing lab for the validation of intra-body networks on human in-vitro models. MMG works very intensively with Clinicians and are involved in many clinical trials of medical sensors within Sweden and Holland.

MAIN TASKS IN THE PROJECT:

UU is the Project Coordinator and leader of WP3 and WP4.

Its research focus will be on:

  1. Microfluidic stretchable PCB technology, forwarding it to A4 rigid-stretch PCB technology with MC, and providing several generations of rigid-stretch PCB based stretchable intelligent sensor nodes to other partners.
  2. Fat-IBC technology, assisting in Fat-IBC networking protocol development and multi sensorial data gathering; characterizing Fat-IBC in different physiological landscape models of human body; security integration to Fat IBC; and characterizing Fat-IBC on subject volunteers.

In Dissemination and Exploitation, UU will work on scientific dissemination at conferences and in scientific publication, and assisting the industrial partners in their dissemination and exploitation.

MIUN Sintec

MID SWEDEN UNIVERSITY

The Swedish Winter Sports Research Centre at Mid Sweden University (MIUN) is a unique, world-renowned laboratory that studies winter sports on both the national and international levels, with a strong focus on interdisciplinary research and the development of technology for monitoring physiological responses, biomechanics, and performance. During the past five years, they have focused primarily on understanding the specific technical demands imposed by contemporary skiing techniques. With respect to physiology, the center focuses on factors that limit sports performance, i.e., maximal aerobic capacity/power and work economy/efficiency, as well as energy metabolism during different modes of
exercise. Our research encompasses measurements both in and outside of the laboratory of muscular strength/power/endurance and of motor control/performance.

MAIN TASKS IN THE PROJECT:

  • Establish protocols for physiological testing, evaluate and demonstrate the applicability of electrophysiological and biomechanical sensors (accuracy, ease of use and comfort) based on rigid stretch PCB technology under both laboratory and outdoor conditions.
  • Assisting the industrial partners in their dissemination and exploitation.
  • Making scientific dissemination at conferences and in scientific publications.
