MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – July 21, 2021) Russian company ScientificCoin said on Tuesday it presented its high-tech gas analysis device to diagnose communicable diseases, including COVID-19, at a national conference on health in Moscow.
“The nation’s health as the foundation of a thriving Russia” was held in Moscow from July 13-15 to present various new approaches to the prevention and treatment of communicable and non-communicable diseases.
“One of the central themes of the forum was the prevention of communicable diseases, in particular the introduction of advanced equipment in the health sector to control the spread of communicable diseases. The stand of the Novosibirsk region presented the HEALTHMONITOR high-tech gas analysis device, developed for the non-invasive diagnosis of a person’s health, ”the company said in a statement.
During the three days of the forum, around 100 people were tested by the device, which also caught the attention of Gennadii Onishсhenko, former chief health inspector of Russia and currently a legislator in the lower house, who has noted its potential for making initial diagnoses.
The HEALTHMONITOR device is developed by ScientificCoin and the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. It uses spectral analysis of human respiration to detect volatile organic compounds from metabolic processes in the human body in exhaled air. If analyzed, these compounds can provide insight into the biochemical process of the human body, which can be used for medical diagnosis. The device uses neural networks to isolate elements of a person’s exhalation spectrum that would indicate whether or not they are sick.
At this point, the device can diagnose medical conditions such as COVID-19, diabetes, asthma, gastritis, lung inflammation, as well as perform sports diagnostics and metabolic analyzes.
