Workshop to evaluate non-functional prototypes

21st January 2024

Patients with olfactory loss have taken part in a workshop at Lyon. They evaluated a set of non-functional prototypes of our digital olfaction module, conceived and built by the team at POLIMI.

We learnt a lot about patients’ needs and their opinions of the different models in terms of ergonomy and esthetics. Their comments were very helpful. Feedback from patients both during and after the day was also positive; they enjoyed the conference and the opportunity for discussion. There is clearly a need both for effective treatments and for patient support & discussion groups.

Digital Olfaction Module, version 1

September 2023

First tests of version 01 of our proof-of-concept digital olfaction module at CNRS Lyon. A sample odor is recognised by the e-nose and mapped to a stimulation, which is felt by a volunteer in real-time.

Scientific Meeting Milano

15th September 2022

Representatives from all members of the consortium gathered in Milan (Italy) on the 15th of September 2022 in order to discuss the achievements and next steps of the Rose project. The latest versions of the odor sensor and of the stimulating array were presented. Thanks to these advances and the cooperation between work packages, the first multi-centric study involving human testing will be launched in the autumn.  Consortium members were given an overview of the PoliMi lab’s facilities for mechanical design and the creation of scenarios for future proof-of-concept using virtual reality.
