Biosensors Supporting Healthcare in Missions will be the central theme of the virtual event, during which MMCC/EMCelectromagnetic compatibility – together with the Committee of the Chiefs of Military Medical Services in NATO (COMEDS) and international stakeholders in the fields of telehealth and biosensor technology – will combine military and civilian expertise with the latest scientific developments.

More than 80 participants from 14 nations

The wide range of international participants from science and the armed forces enrolled for this event gives reason to expect an interesting and multifaceted programme around the core points "fitness for duty", "biosensor technology in support of health and medicine", and potential "guidelines and limits in the use of biosensors". MMCC/EMCelectromagnetic compatibility has been able to win over leading military officers and scientists from the fields of biology, physics, medicine, cyber and IT, sports and health to identify common new fields of action and, thus, lay the foundation for future international projects and high-quality results. MMCC/EMCelectromagnetic compatibility, thus, breaks new ground in this rapidly growing subject area. Synergy effects can be exploited and parallel developments reduced.

The aim is to support health care on operations

In the future, soldiers will be equipped with biosensors to monitor their health status.

The advantages of using portable Biosensors Supporting Healthcare in Missions have continuously increased in recent years. Several solutions are on the brink of being implemented by the military medical services of several nations.

By bringing together leading experts from the bio-sensor technology field, MMCC/EMCelectromagnetic compatibility as a hub for civil-military medical expertise will make a contribution to establishing a community of interest (COI) in the field of telehealth, and to identifying common fields of activity and future projects with participating nations.
