Our app is available on android mobile soon!
Measuring your blood pressure has never been so simple! Just sit back and relax in the comfort of your home, slip on the monitor and with the push of a button the iHealth MyVitals app starts and records the measurement.
No matter what your fitness level is, keep tabs on your daily activity with this tracker that can be worn on your wrist like a watch or on your hip with the clip. It works around the clock to give you the best insights on your steps, calories burned and distance traveled.
The Metria Wearable Sensor is another new tool aimed at helping the healthcare industry shift toward prevention. It works like this: The user attaches the wearable sensor, which uses "skin-friendly" adhesive; the sensor collects data, such as the number of hours slept and breaths per minute; and the sensor wirelessly transmits a summary of the data to the user's or caregiver's device, such as a smartphone.
Imec's wearable electroencephalography (EEG) headset and EKG patch keep tabs on your brain and heart activity, respectively. Your heart rate and 3D-accelerometer data are stored in the system or streamed to a smartphone. Imec also has developed a wireless EEG headset prototype. The system uses impedance monitoring and active electrodes to increase the quality of EEG signal recording, compared to former versions of the system. The data is then transmitted in real time to a receiver located up to 10 miles away from the system. The Imec development services are available in the U.S. as prototypes only. Pictured above is a user demonstrating the Imec EEG headset.
Moticon is the world's first fully integrated and wireless sensor insole, according to the company. The insole can be used in any shoe to measure the distribution and motion parameters for patients and athletes. It's currently used for everyday patient monitoring, rehabilitation measures, and for training analysis in sports. The sensor insole, which is fitted with firmware that communicates with PC software via a USB radio stick, is easy to use and doesn't require special training. In 2010, Moticon was awarded the International Innovation Award for product of the year at the ISPO Sporting Goods Trade Fair. Moticon is commercially available, but distribution in the U.S. is still in the works.
TmG-BMC lets users monitor muscle fatigue while exercising using a muscle contraction (MC) sensor. The company's newest product is its MC sensor, which measures muscle mechanics directly and selectively under different loads and during exercise. It provides feedback on individual muscles for contraction and relaxation speeds, as well as produced force.
Direct selective muscle assessment offers a new approach to injury prevention, rehabilitation monitoring, and training optimization particularly in speed development, according to the vendor. TmG-BMC is available in the U.S. Pictured above is an example of a 5mm sensor.
A small sensor attached to the patient's chest collects data, including ECG, heart rate, respiration rate, and activity level. The device then transmits data to physicians via mobile phone technology. This remote monitoring of the patient provides a continual connection between patients and their care teams. Pictured above is the BodyGuardian system displayed on multiple mobile devices, as well as the wearable body sensor.
Danfoss PolyPower A/S is working to develop and commercialize its electroactive polymer technology, called PolyPower. The company's first design focuses on stretch sensors that safely and precisely measure displacement on or close to the human body, such as motions, breathing, swelling, posture, and so on. The sensors are made of PolyPower -- the company's Dielectric Electroactive Polymer (DEAP) material -- combined with electrical connections.
Nuubo is a new-generation wireless and remote cardiac monitoring platform. The company designs, manufactures and sells a portfolio of wearable medical technologies for cardiac prevention, diagnostics, and rehabilitation solutions. The tools are based on a wireless ECG remote monitoring platform that incorporates proprietary biomedical e-textile technology called BlendFix Sensor Electrode Technology. Nuubo is commercially available, but U.S. distribution is yet to be determined. Pictured above is an example of a Nuubo device being used to monitor the heart rate of an athlete.
