Libelium, the Spanish IoT hardware and platform provider, has released MySignals, an eHealth development platform capable of supporting 15 different health related sensors. These include the most important body parameters such as ECG, glucose, airflow, pulse, oxygen in blood and blood pressure.
MySignals includes the key parameters that are usually measured in a hospital monitoring room, fits in a small suitcase and costs one hundred times less than an Emergency Observation Unit. All the biometric data is encrypted and sent to the Libelium Cloud in real time to be visualised on the user's private account.
“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,” argued David Gascón, CTO at Libelium.
The platform is also designed to help developers prototype applications in ‘a deep, affordable and easy way’. 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 visualised 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," stated David Gascón.
Libelium believes MySignals improves the future of health services to cover one of the main challenges of the century: enhancing the universal accessibility to a healthcare system for more than two billion people worldwide.
According to CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation), self-health care monitoring technology could save $3 billion yearly to public health services in avoidable admissions to hospital, reduced length of stay and fewer demands on primary care.
According to Libelium, its MySignals solution is the first time an IoT solution has been released to the market ready for eHealth applications, including a completely in-house design, from the hardware to the software for data visualisation. “This is a strategic shift of the company approaching to the whole value chain of the IoT,” explained Alicia Asín, Libelium CEO.
The platform includes CE, FCC and IC certifications.
