References 28AcknowledgmentHaving obtained my bachelor in electrical and computer engineering years ago, I am always inclined towards technical solutions and creativity in the technology field was more of a passion than a job.During my final year project at the American University of Beirut, I was lucky enough to be a member of an amazing, homogeneous, easy going, creative and passionate team with my colleagues Rand Kassamani and Rachad Ismail, and a great advisor, Professor Dr. Nasir Husni Sabbah.
Our masterpiece took a complete year to be ready. We were even contacted by Microsoft Corporation (Middle east division) in order to compete in the Microsoft Imagine Cup, where we placed second.Description of the Framework ConditionsDescription of the product ideaThe product in discussion is an innovation in the field of biomedical engineering and it is a handheld respiration monitor. It is a device that monitors the respiration pattern of a subject and allows the identification of respiratory and neurological disorders. The innovation in our product however, is mobility and connectivity. These two terms will occur at multiple stages in this marketing plan. The device is portable and very light weight, and can be connected to any pc or laptop using a standard USB 2.0 port as shown in the picture below. It is extremely energy efficient so it can use power through the USB connection, and no external power source needed. Going a bit more into technical details, the devices uses a series of high precision sensors and modules to gage pressure and digitize data which makes it compliant to the SMDA standard.The device is accompanied with a software that can be installed on any workstation with Microsoft Windows OS. The respiration monitor is operated through the software, where you can initiate the tests and collect the results that include but are not limited to: airflow speed, breathes per minute, lung capacity, residual air volume, as well as live monitoring of the breathing pattern. The results are then saved in form of a report on the workstation and uploaded to a cloud drive using Windows Azure technology so that the reports will be accessible from any location at any time. The software uses an encryption module to protect the account of the operator where he can find all his previous activities/tests.In this way, we can guarantee that data relevant to the operator is readily available for use which will save a lot of time and effort as well as minimizing the risks on patients in critical condition.Selection of an Eligible CompanyThe decision of the company to adopt and launch my product is GE Healthcare.
