AIIMS to give wearable sensors to school-going asthmatic children

These pollution sensors will consistently monitor the children's exposure to air pollution, both indoor and outdoor, for facilitating a study in the matter.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) will provide wearable sensors to school-going asthmatic children in the National Capital.

These pollution sensors will consistently monitor the children's exposure to air pollution, both indoor and outdoor, for facilitating a study in the matter. They are lightweight, easy to strap around the waist and will generate a comprehensive data on their air pollution exposure throughout the day.

As a part of the study, these wearable sensors will be provided to the children for a week. This study is being conducted in collaboration with IIT-Delhi, University of Edinburgh, Imperial College of London and Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai.

Dr Karan Madan, Assistant Professor, Pulmonary Department, AIIMS, said, "These high-quality sensors will give us data on how much a child is exposed to air pollution while they are in school, travelling, or are at home. This will help us assess its impact on their health."

"These belts will provide us with a real-time pollution exposure information and will get uploaded on the central information server which is recording the pollution levels. It will help us study how the changing levels of pollution impact and affect the health of a child and also establish a connection between the indoor and outdoor pollution," he added.
