Smart wearables Biometric devices are here! On your wrist, in your ear, in your shoes, around your chest, on your glasses and/or in your shirt!
Yes, Biometric accessories coupled to Bluetooth and your smartphone can monitor your heartbeat, breathing, breathing volume, and motion.
Using smart bio-sensors and tri axis accelerometers help to motion sensors in order to track your basic functions. The applications on a smart phone interpret the information to monitor and critique your work out.
Our Perfect Small Office Mason Tenant, Samsin, the owner of Blaupunkt, has developed a biometric, stereo headphone system. These headphones work with Bluetooth and a smart phone application to track, pace, speed, distance, duration, cadence, step rate and elevation that can calculate cardio efficiency and project weight loss and net fat burned in a work out, all while listening to stereo or taking a call.
Shirts that measure your movement and your intensity through silver-based thread integrated into the shirt, captured by a little box the size of a credit card that sends a message via Bluetooth to your phone. It includes a magnometer, gyrometer and accelerometer to record and track your movements and steps.
Pedo-Biometrics Lab has developed a shoe insole that rate how much pressure is applied to each foot and a person’s monitor gait.
The manufactures have stayed away from making medical conclusions from this data as the standards for medical applications are not yet written and are evaluated on a device by device basis.
We applaud our Mason Office Center tenant, Samsin for this amazing innovation and we look forward to hearing more about the success of this device.
