TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) said on Wednesday (Jan. 20) that it did well at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, where it exhibited 12 tech innovations.

Many foreign institutes and companies have expressed interest in ITRI's exhibits, which included the Handheld Ultrasound System, the Heart Guardian, and the Handheld Skin Quality Optical Coherence Tomography system, CNA reported.

According to the ITRI, the Handheld Ultrasound System enables healthcare professionals to perform ultrasound exams anywhere and at any time, saving critical minutes in emergency situations. The system uses a mobile application and Wi-Fi to transmit images to handheld devices. It can be widely applied to internal medicine, obstetrics, gynecology, and rehabilitation, the institute said, adding that it is well suited for simple healthcare environments.

The ITRI said the Russian Academy of Science's Institute of Biomedical Problems has highly praised the system and said it looks forwards to further cooperation.

The Heart Guardian, a non-invasive e-health wearable device, monitors cardiac output per minute, heart rate, pulmonary artery blood flow velocity, and blood output volume while offering continuous real-time monitoring of patients with heart disease. A number of American and Czech companies have expressed interest in the innovation and inquired about the availability of the product, according to the research institute.

Spain’s automation solution developer AINIA has indicated its interest in the Handheld Skin Quality Optical Coherence Tomography system, which replaces the conventional invasive biopsy. It analyzes subsurface skin structures and detects collagen distribution in the dermis layer, according to the institute.
