PA’s Frazer Bennett, a technology expert is interviewed by CIO Sweden about the firm’s electronic health patch.

The article highlights how the patch, which was developed at PA’s technology centre in Cambridge, UK, is the size of a coin, less than a millimeter thick and can be applied directly to the skin. It can analyse important functions in the body, and this information can then be transferred to a mobile app. If there are signs of trouble, an alarm is sent to the patient’s doctor or clinic and the patient can be quickly called in for a checkup

Frazer says: It’s not very common for PA to make its own products – we are a consulting company after all – but when we have confidence in the value of a technology, or the growth area of its application, we are keen to do it. Although we will not launch the patch into the market ourselves, our upfront investment will help existing and new clients in this area.”

Frazer adds: The patch was developed as a medical device, so before it can be launched it will go through regulatory trials and needs FDA (or similar) approval for use. This means the patch is at least two years away from being on the market.”
