The TeStI project aims to enhance remote visiting by providing health professionals with additional and more detailed information on the health status of patients. In recent days, the instrumentation that will allow the experimentation to begin has arrived at Fondazione Bruno Kessler.

The devices, which will be delivered to a selected group of patients, will allow to record specific parameters and information that will provide hospital staff a more complete monitoring of patients, thus avoiding that they have to go to the ambulatory care clinics. Among the information that can be recorded are heart rate, lung and heart sounds, high resolution images of the throat and ear, and a one-lead electrocardiogram.
