Project description

The Kyoji project has addressed problems in examining the intensity of emotions and feelings in people with mental disorders (depression, bipolar disorder), and suffering from chronic diseases with permanent and severe pain. We had developed a device for recording the intensity and time of moods, behaviours and pain, which improves communication between those patients and their doctors, therapists and caregivers. Registration takes place when the device is squeezed. The Midgard device has an internal memory, and it can send data wirelessly to the smartphone application. It is intended for use both at medical institutions including hospitals, palliative wards and hospices, and in home care.

The project objective was to upgrade the product baseline version produced on a small pilot scale by adding functional features such as: wireless charging, a higher tightness class, higher mechanical strength, and the ability to connect and transfer data to and from a medical facility/institution. To that end, we purchased technical consulting services of the prestigious Łukasiewicz Research Network to develop and test an IOT gate prototype and the device electronics. An RTV silicone production technology was developed for the silicone case of the device. Market analysis and detailed design requirements were prepared. The project also covered the construction of a measuring position with oscilloscope and true RMS multimeter; the purchase of a 3d printer and software for designing electronic diagrams and 3d modeling. And last but not least – we received technical mentoring services which concerned the wireless charging technology and the Bluetooth technology, and that knowledge will certainly prove very useful in our other projects too.

The Norwegian partner, Ilder AS, as an IT services company was responsible for supervision over all the works and technology consultations.

Beside entering the market with the new product, we introduced two technological processes under the project: a new technology of silicon details production, and automation of the electronic production process, the latter of which had not been planned in the grant application.
