***COVID-19*** Applied Biosignals supports development of emergency ventilators
Applied Biosignals GmbH has been supporting scientific research and product development in the field of breathing and mechanical ventilation¹ for over 10 years. During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemia, the tools and knowledge we have been building up are frequently requested.
One of the projects we are currently supporting, is the development of an emergency ventilator at the Technical University of Delft, in the Netherlands, called 'Operation Air'. We have supplied this team of students and scientists at no cost with Polybench to generate evaluation data, and the NewLifeBox-XL (joint development of Applied Biosignals and Advanced Life Diagnostics) to measure ventilation parameters.

Applied Biosignals and partner Advanced Life Diagnostics sponsor resuscitation course at jENS 2019 in Maastricht
We have sponsored a course for neonatologists with equipment for training of mask ventilation of premature born babies. More than 50 specialists from Europe, Russia, Australia and Japan were introduced in advanced monitoring of the resuscitation process.
More information about mask ventilation training tools can be found on our partner's website www.newlifebox.com.
Applied Biosignals part of German federation sponsored project ATTENTION
Applied Biosignals GmbH is part of the ATTENTION consortium that aims to develop supporting tools for adult patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
ADHD treatment in adults usually consists of medication and/or psychotherapy, whereby the success of medication is usually higher than the success of psychotherapy. However, ADHD treatment with medication often leads to undesired side effects and must also be closely monitored. The aim of the ATTENTION project is to develop a novel medical-technical system for simultaneous transcranial stimulation and derivation of an electroencephalogram (EEG). Extremely low-level electrical stimulation done this way, should improve attention and endurance for these patients to handle cognitive tasks.
The ATTENTION consortium consists of an interdisciplinary team of software developers, electrical engineers, usability experts and medical experts at universities and private companies across Germany. Please visit the ATTENTION website for more information.
