Geneva Inventions is one of the biggest European events, during which inventors from around the world meet with representatives of industry and of the world of business. Solutions presented at the fair are also evaluated by dozens of experts. At the stand prepared by the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers (Stowarzyszenie Polskich Wynalazców i Racjonalizatorów), 13 solutions were presented, 6 of which were selected in the "Student-Inventor" competition organized for 9 years by the Kielce University of Technology. During the fair, the University of Silesia was represented by the laureate of the competition, PhD student mgr inż. Michał Pielka.
The invention was applied in the breathing monitor – a multifunctional device allowing to control various parameters related to the respiratory system and locomotor activity, such as strength or frequency of the breath, as well as the pulse and the change of the child's body position, and much more. The invention presented in Geneva implements several patent applications and industrial designs of national and European scope. You can read more about the breathing monitor at the website of the University of Silesia.
