Exclusive Partnership Signals Progress Towards Application for Medical Environments
CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 21, 2014 /CNW/ -- The exponential growth in the number of people tracking their health through activity monitors and biosensor devices is driving the need for industry standards. To ensure the validity of this personal data, Vivametrica and SensorUp today announced an exclusive partnership to collect, standardize and integrate data from wearable devices for application in healthcare environments.
This partnership standardizes and calibrates the data that will integrate into Vivametrica's analytics platform, resulting in exceptional data management and accurate assessments for consumers, enterprises and healthcare organizations.
- Accurate, standardized measurement: Vivametrica provides a platform for the analysis and management of data collected from wearable devices. SensorUp's leading geo-spatial technology will influence Vivametrica's risk assessments incorporating activity, medical history and location-based factors.
- Big Data expertise: SensorUp is a leading expert in data analysis and standardization as outlined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). Its executive team is involved in several initiatives dedicated to developing a standard for providing an open and unified way to interconnect Internet of Things (IoT) devices, data and applications.
Dr. Richard Hu, founder and CEO of Vivametrica, said: "Before wearable devices can be considered valid for medical use, an industry-wide standard for data management must be developed. Our first priority is to get the data off the device and standardize it, before any meaningful evaluations can be made. By leveraging SensorUp's technology, Vivametrica will be able to better streamline development and data analysis to assist users in making sense of the information."
Dr. Steve Liang, founder, SensorUp, said: "Vivametrica's commitment to defining industry standards and bringing responsible, research-proven analysis to health data makes them an excellent partner for us. SensorUp's mission is to develop industry benchmarks for data collection to help users across industries use the information in a positive and reliable way. We look forward to leveraging our proficiency with biosensor data management with Vivametrica's medical research to radically improve the application of wearable devices for healthcare."
Vivametrica provides a first of its kind analytics platform for wearable healthcare. Its device agnostic platform delivers a standardized approach to data collection and management, bridging the gap between wearable fitness applications and actionable data for consumers, enterprises, healthcare and researchers. Created by physicians and researchers, Vivametrica's approach is based on comprehensive clinical findings in the fields of physical activity, rehabilitation and medicine.
