Breath Hydrogen Monitor
Product Using a hydrogen sensorToshiba corporation
The global increase in lifespan is making it essential to increase healthspan. One key to health is to improve intestinal flora. Since healthy intestinal flora produces hydrogen, breath hydrogen testing is attracting much attention. By leveraging its microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, Toshiba has developed an ultra-small hydrogen sensor chip with a size of several millimeters square, which features high sensitivity, low power consumption, and high response speed. The pilot breath hydrogen monitor incorporating this sensor is used to visualize intestinal health and thereby increase healthspan.
