VivaLNK, a Silicon Valley company that provides connected healthcare solutions for wellness, patient care, and telemedicine, received CE Mark for its multi-vital medical wearable sensor and software development kit (SDK).
Weighing only 7.5 grams, the reusable and wearable ECG patch sticks to the patient’s chest and can record ECG waveforms, respiratory rate, heart rate, RR interval, as well as movement based on a three-axis accelerometer. Based on VivaLNK’s eSkin® technology and patient-centric design, the sensor comes in the form of a small bandage sized patch designed to be user friendly, reusable, and well suited for both in-patient and remote patient monitoring (RPM) applications. The device can be used repeatedly, reports VivaLNK in a press release.
“The CE Mark is another major milestone in VivaLNK’s pursuit of delivering advanced patient monitoring solutions to market. VivaLNK’s unique electronic skin technology offers powerful technical capabilities without compromising user experience,” Jiang Li, CEO of VivaLNK. “Our aim is to accelerate medical application development by providing the sensor platform so that the industry can rapidly innovate novel solutions while at the same time making it more accessible to patients around the world.”
The multi-vital sensor and SDK is part of VivaLNK’s Medical Sensor Platform strategy which accelerates medical application innovation by decoupling the sensor hardware, data capture in remote locations, and cloud connectivity from the application so that healthcare solution developers can focus on the algorithms and analytics for their specific domain.
Applications powered by VivaLNK’s Medical Sensor Platform include:
- Chemotherapy remote patient monitoring
- Clinical trial remote patient monitoring
- Cardiac arrhythmia monitoring
- Patient infection monitoring
- Hypertension stress management
- Heart failure event detection
VivaLNK’s portfolio includes wearable medical grade devices and data analytics applications that continuously monitor the health and well-being of individuals. The company’s vision is to improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare worldwide by combining technology, data, and analytics into an integrated solution.
