Analog Devices, (ADI) announces its collaboration with LifeQ to develop technology that will make it possible for non-invasive body monitoring devices to provide highly accurate physiological data that currently is only available through the use of expensive, invasive and hard-to-access equipment. By combining the engineering and innovation of Analog Devices with the unique bio-mathematical capabilities of LifeQ, the two companies plan to design sensors that enable personalised, continuous and accurate tracking of physiological parameters such as heart rate, sleep phases, sleep quality, blood lactate, 24-hour calorie intake as well as stress markers such as salivary cortisol.
Monitoring this type of data can increase early detection of emergency conditions and diseases in at-risk patients. It also helps in preventing, predicting and managing diseases. This, in turn, will impact how doctors and patients share information, interact, and make decisions about patient care.
