Libelium launches IoT connected health platform
October 13, 2016
Spanish IoT sensor developer Libelium has launched an IoT platform for ehealth and connected health development and delivery. Libelium's new MySignals is a biometrical IoT platform designed to allow developers to create new ehealth software applications and medical devices measuring 20 different vital signs parameters.
MySignals features 15 different sensors that measure the most important body parameters (ECG, glucose, airflow, pulse, oxygen in blood, blood pressure, etc). All biometric data is encrypted and sent to the Libelium Cloud in realtime to be visualized on the user’s private account.
MySignals includes the key parameters that are usually measured in a hospital monitoring room.
A small white device, MySignals fits in a small suitcase and according to Libelium, costs one hundred times lower than an Emergency Observation Unit.
“Half of the world’s population lives in rural areas with very limited access to hospitals; this platform could enhance the potential of new IoT eHealth and medical applications”, says David Gascón, Libelium CTO.
Libelium offers two different API’s for developers to access the information. The Android / iOS API allows to get information directly from MySignals using Bluetooth. The API Cloud allows to access to the user’s private account and get the information previously stored to be visualized in a third party platform. “Until now, there was nothing in the market like MySignals, the perfect development tool for new medical devices and applications for quick prototyping and testing eHealth products“, states David Gascón.
