Professor Mohammad Moghimi, Ph.D. is working with his research group to investigate the development of a home-health monitoring device to detect the signs of COVID-19, alert individuals in the early stages of infection, and help physicians track the status of patients remotely. This technology will minimize the need for visiting hospitals during the pandemic and save the healthcare capacity for patients in critical conditions. The device takes advantage of an array of micro-scale sensors to record the signals associated with COVID-19 and records the data on personal electronics.
