At the recent Medical Sensors Design Conference in San Jose, Voler Systems announced the availability of the Universal Health-Sensor Platform that gathers data faster and empowers continuous innovation. To date, there have been relatively few sensor development platforms created for wearable devices, and the company hopes this platform will help kick start a much-needed collaborative data collection system for trending health wearables.
The platform will allow firms to gather more physical data that relates to a condition or complication, enabling them to improve existing therapies and provide a more accurate diagnosis. Firms will also be able to test wearable device sensors, and ensure the wearable is collecting the correct measurements and performing to standards. Additionally, this platform will provide hypothesis testing to further medical research and clinical care.
“Voler’s Universal Health-Sensor Platform is your fastest path to capturing and transmitting physiological data from humans,” said Walt Maclay, President of Voler Systems. “It is a pre-engineered prototype device that can directly evolve into your eventual commercial product.”
The current prototype collects data on individuals in order to determine the right type of sensor they should be using, the most accurate place on the body they should wear their sensor and the best software algorithm to process the sensor data.
Other benefits of the Universal Health-Sensor Platform include:
- Fast, low-cost development, because platform is pre-engineered to send data to the cloud
- The ability to test sensors and collect real data with an operative prototype wearable
- Addition of new sensors to the original design
- Data is downloaded from the cloud or processed in real-time and continuously collected with custom code
- Code can be ported to production designs
