Maxim unveils wrist-worn platform for monitoring ECG, heart rate and temperature

This next-generation rapid prototyping, evaluation and development platform, also known as MAXREFDES101#, brings the ability to monitor electrocardiogram (ECG), heart rate and body temperature to a wrist-worn wearable, saving up to six months in development time.When it comes to wearables, a wrist-based device is convenient for users to wear daily. However, it has been challenging to derive precise ECG monitoring from the wrist (most alternatives require a wearable chest strap). In addition, getting accurate body temperature typically requires using a thermometer at another location. Through its proprietary sensor and health monitoring technology, Maxim has overcome these challenges in the HSP 2.0.Enclosed in a watch casing, the wrist-based form factor enables HSP 2.0 to provide basic functionality out of the box, with body-monitoring measurements starting immediately. Data can be stored on the platform for patient evaluation or streamed to a PC for analysis later. Unlike other wearables, the data measurements collected by the HSP 2.0 can be owned by the wearer, alleviating data privacy concerns and allowing users to conduct their own data analysis. Also, because HSP 2.0 is an open platform, designers can evaluate their own algorithms on the board. In addition, the modular format is future proof to quickly accommodate new sensors over time.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software last_img read more

Spain’s anti-doping agency closes investigation into Denis Cheryshev

first_imgSoccer Share on WhatsApp Share on Twitter The player shared a letter from the AEPSAD on his official Twitter account on Thursday which stated the case had been closed after “no signs of irregular conduct were found”.The investigation stemmed from an interview which Dmitri Cheryshev gave to Russian publication Sport Weekend during the World Cup, in which he was quoted saying his son had received an injection containing a “growth hormone” in the run-up to the tournament to treat an injury.The Russian Football Union (RFU) said at the time that the treatment the player received had been a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection which is legal and said the journalist had incorrectly interpreted Dmitri Cheryshev’s words.Cheryshev joined Valencia on loan from Villarreal in August. He scored in Russia’s 2-1 win at Turkey in the Uefa Nations League last Friday. Valencia’s director general Mateu Alemany said on Wednesday the club was unaware of the investigation, adding he believed the player’s father had been misquoted.“We haven’t been notified about what has been published. If the player was involved in an investigation then they [the agency] should have told the club and the player,” Alemany said. “We have had no communication in any form, he was subject to controls at Villarreal and at the World Cup. After reading everything, I think it’s an error in the transcription, because growth factors are not the same as growth hormones.” Share on Pinterest Spain’s anti-doping agency has closed its investigation into Russia and the Valencia winger Denis Cheryshev after his father Dmitri had told Russian media that his son had taken an injection containing a “growth hormone” to treat an injury. “The AEPSAD has closed the investigation, the decision has been communicated to the player, the Russian anti-doping agency and the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA),” a spokesman for the Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport, which is responsible for the fight against doping, said. Cheryshev, who scored four goals in Russia’s run to the World Cup quarter-finals, has denied ever taking a banned substance. “I have never used any prohibited substances and you don’t even have to think twice about it,” he said during the World Cup.
