Pulse Racing

Wij zijn PULSE Racing, een van de dreamteams van de VU, en zetten ons in om functionele elektrostimulatie (FES) voor mensen met een dwarslaesie verder door te ontwikkelen. Met behulp van FES kunnen ook deze patiënten hun beenspieren blijven gebruiken. En dat biedt voordelen voor zowel hun mentale- als fysieke gezondheid.

ReadEx

Approximately 10% of the global population is affected by dyslexia. Readex aims to develop a smart reading aid to support affected students and promote inclusive learning environments. Utilizing artificial intelligence, our glasses will have the ability to recognize and extract words from the text being read, translating them into real-time audio perceived via earphones. By […]

Respira

Breath sensors for pre-symptomatic disease detection Over the past few years, traffic incidents caused by drivers that are under the influence of laughing gas have increased more than ten-fold. Unlike for alcohol and drugs, there is currently no device available that can prove a driver was under the influence of laughing gas. We are developing […]

SanguisAI

At SanguisAI, we are developing a device to measure hemoglobin levels in a fast, inexpensive, painless and waste free manner. This way we can ensure preventative screening and ongoing monitoring and complementing the reactive diagnostic process. We draw on the technique called PPG, which uses the body’s cardiac rhythm and the reflection of the light […]

SolarFoil

SolarFoil increases production yields of horticulture by utilizing the sun’s potential to it’s fullest. Agriculture is continuously under pressure to become more efficient and minimize the negative impact on the environment. Sunlight is at the heart of horticulture, yet plants and microalgae do not utilize all the light offered by the sun as efficiently. UV light […]

VU-AMS

The VU University Ambulatory Monitoring System (VU-AMS) developed at the VU University in Amsterdam is used worldwide by many research groups to study stress and emotion in both laboratory and naturalistic settings.
