Improve effectiveness of body monitoring devices in health management
25 April 2016
Analog Devices announced collaboration with LifeQ to develop technology that will make it possible for non-invasive body monitoring devices to provide highly accurate physiological data.
By combining Analog Devices with the biomathematical capabilities of LifeQ, the two companies plan to design sensors that enable personalised, continuous and accurate tracking of physiological parameters such as heart rate, sleep phases, sleep quality, blood lactate, 24 hour calorie intake as well as stress markers such as salivary cortisol. Monitoring this type of data can increase early detection of emergency conditions and diseases in at-risk patients.
“The development of smart wearable sensors is essential to supercharge the next generation of non-invasive body monitoring solutions,” said James Doscher, general manager, Industrial and Business Healthcare Group, Analog Devices. “ADI offers the semiconductor expertise and LifeQ provides the bio-mathematical understanding needed to develop sensors that can make body monitoring devices even more effective in preventing, predicting and managing diseases. This, in turn, will impact how doctors and patients share information, interact, and make decisions about patient care. Patients can have greater access to vital data about their own bodies and be more involved in their overall health and wellness.”
"LifeQ’s collaboration with ADI will enable sensor solutions that meet a higher and wider standard, including new industry benchmarks such as the latest Android Wear requirements,” said Riaan Conradie, co-founder and chief operating officer, LifeQ. “Our goal is to deliver high-value physiological data to ecosystem partners who are serving consumer lifestyle, corporate wellness and health insurance markets."
