ECG Sensing Solution for Vital Signs Monitoring

Technology Overview

This technology provides an electrocardiography (ECG) monitoring solution to accurately measure health performance metrics via electrode-based sensors, chipset and related software analytics. With a sensor chip measuring vital signs of the wearer, the technology utilises intelligent algorithms capable of analysing signals that indicate health performance metrics, such as heart rate variability and stress levels.

Technology on offer includes sensors, chipsets, device and analytics. The solution is suitable for wrist-worn wearables, and clothing. Recorded data can be displayed on mobile, web applications and cloud. In comparison with current health tracking devices on the market, this technology provides reference design, SDK and ready to deploy algorithms for developers.

Technology Features & Specifications

This technology uses an electrode to measure bio-potential generated by the heart’s electrical signals. The electrode is a transducer which converts the changing bio-potential generated by the contraction of heart muscles into a digital signal for analysis. The bio-signals are then processed and analysed by algorithms to provide accurate ECG results.

The solution comprises of an electrode sensor, a biosensor chip and ready to deploy algorithms for measurement and analysis of human parameters. The solution is capable of integration into wearable devices, clothing and mobile phones. Furthermore, an open SDK on Android and iOS platforms allow easy customization by developers with existing products.

Current algorithms are able to provide the following measurement:

• Heart Rate Variability
• Stress
• Heart Rate Recovery
• Respiration Rate

Potential Applications

1. Consumer wellness wearables for fitness tracking
2. Workplace safety monitoring
3. Operational Efficiency evaluations by providing group level insights into employee health

Market Trends and Opportunities
