The healthcare solutions provider VivaLNK has unveiled a new medical device that tracks human vital signs and biometrics. Dubbed the Sensor Platform, the wearable IoT device will gather patient data such as heart rate, temperature, and ECG patterns. It will then upload the data to a cloud platform, where it can then be accessed and analyzed on other connected devices.
According to VivaLNK CEO Jiang Li, the Sensor Platform will
help generate the data needed to power machine learning applications in the
â€śThe launch of our Sensor Platform is instrumental in
helping solution partners accelerate medical and healthcare innovation to
market,â€ť saidÂ Li. â€śTo have a more complete picture of patient
health, applications and algorithms need a variety of relevant data that can be
used to correlate and accurately assess and predict health situations.â€ť
The Sensor Platform will be on display at the VivaLNK booth
2019 throughout the week. In the meantime, the Sensor Platform is already
available through VivaLNKâ€™s Developer Program, allowing companies like Vitalic Medical to use it to build a
bedside system that can predict and prevent falls in aging patients.
â€śBy leveraging VivaLNK wearable sensor within the
Vitalic platform, Vitalic Medical can offer an early trigger system that helps
nurses identify early signs of patient deterioration and fall-risk patients,â€ť
said Vitalic Medical CEO Sue Dafnias.
The partnership with Vitalic Medical is an early indication
that Sensor Platform will indeed fuel data analysis in a number of different
medical fields. The Sensor Platform is the latest entry in the growing
market for wearable healthcare devices such as Qualcommâ€™s
