GPX Medical – NEOLA®
NEOLA® uses a biomedical application of GASMAS* technology originally developed by researchers at the Division of Atomic Physics at Lund University. Small and lightweight emitter and detector probes are positioned on the skin. Near-infrared light is sent through the chest cavity, where a small portion is absorbed by water vapor and oxygen gas molecules in the lungs. The detector probe detects some of the light that travelled through the tissue and the signal shows how much of the light that has been absorbed by the gas molecules. Using this data, NEOLA® can register small changes related to lung volume and oxygen gas concentration. The probes can be easily removed and repositioned, avoiding discomfort and stress for the infant.
