Many startups from Taiwan are showcasing innovative smart healthcare solutions at CES 2020 incorporating edge computing, AI and non-invasive medical technologies to materialize preventive medicine and holistic healthcare services.

Among the exhibits at the Taiwan Tech Arena pavilion is an AI-assisted chest sound monitoring system unveiled by Heroic-Faith Medical Science. The system can automatically collect breathing sound data of patients and monitor the breath via different angles using 6-8 detection pads, according to company CTO FJ Tsai.

Tsai said that the system can detect early symptoms of many major lung diseases including spasm, pulmonary edema, and fibrosis in order to materialize preventive medicine and provide early treatment for patients.

Ahead Medicine debuts its AI-based clinical blood cancer analysis system. The system, with an intelligent algorithm developed based on over 5,000 pieces of medical data, can offer up to 90% accurate blood analysis to help physicians identify and optimize blood cancer treatment strategies within seven seconds, compared to 30 minutes in the past, according to company CEO Andrea Wang.

Wang said her company's solutions can not only visualize data but also incorporate healthcare data and clinical experiences into AI-based algorithms through machine learning. She continued that Ahead will move to develop AI-assisted medical solutions to deal with more diseases.

The flow-EZ solution developed by Above Care is a non-invasive blood detection system that hemodialysis patients can easily operate to check their blood flow conditions in 10 seconds.

Other exhibits include an instrument provided by FaceHeart allowing users to check their abnormal heart beats via face detection.
