Chennai | Monday, Feb 12 2018 IST
Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) has developed the algorithm for the country's first medical-grade, wearable device with algorithms for deriving vitals in a non-invasive manner, called "VinCense."Developed jointly with MedIoTek Health Systems, which works on mobile health technology, VinCense could be used for unobtrusive monitoring. Vital signs including, pulse rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, skin temperature, blood pressure and others were duly recorded through this device. ''The real-time data are stored in the patent-pending secured cloud from where healthcare providers can access vitals using an intuitive interface'', an IIT-M release on Monday said.

VinCense could be deployed for Home Healthcare delivery, Insurance/Analytics and Corporate/Industrial Occupational Health Screening. It also has applications for Non-Communicable Diseases Screening and Surveillance, general Public health, and Community Health.

The device was developed by a team led by Prof M Manivannan, Head of Touch Lab, Biomedical Engineering Group, Department of Applied Mechanics, IIT-M. MORE UNI GV CS 1714
