Xsight Optics, based in Jena (Germany), a project company of Xlife Sciences AG (SIX: XLS), has successfully participated in this year's StartUp competition ?get started 2gether? organized by the Thuringia Research and Technology Association and the Thuringia Ministry of Economics: The company won funding for a relevant new research and development project, and was also awarded the audience prize.
Xsight Optics' vision is to expand human-centered, digital care. To this end, the company is developing a portable optical sensor with which medical staff in hospitals and care facilities can, for example, record the heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature, and respiratory rate of patients from a safe distance without contact (and transfer them directly to an already existing Documentation system).
This mobile sensor derives these health parameters from several image properties through a clever combination of optical technology, microelectronics, and AI-supported algorithms. Central to this is secure and reliable imaging software. The awarded prize money of EUR 80,000 will enable Xsight Optis to finance a corresponding R&D project with the Intelligent Systems Department of the Institute for Applied Building Research Weimar.
Oliver R. Baumann, CEO of Xlife Sciences, comments: ?We warmly congratulate CEO Maria Nisser and CSO Jan Sperrhake of our project company Xsight Optics for their doubly successful pitch at the renowned Thuringian StartUp funding award ?get started 2gether?. The funding thus achieved for the interdisciplinary research and development project with the experts in computer vision and data analysis from the Institute for Applied Building Research Weimar is a relevant milestone for Xsight Optics' endeavor to expand human-centered, digital care.?
