Imec and Cloudtag collaborate on frictionless, next-gen tracker
More lifestyle coaching than mere wearable devices, Cloudtag has launched its Cloudtag Track frictionless, wearable device, developed in collaboration with imec, the nanoelectronics research centre.
The fitness tracker combines fitness and health monitoring with design, it says, for fitness and the care, cure and prevention cycle by providing immediate access to medical data and personalised feedback.
imec developed algorithms for the medical technology company’s wearable sensor devices that enable accurate monitoring of physiological parameters. Cloudtag Track is its first wearable multi-sensor device. It is light and small, yet integrates a proprietary algorithm that retrieves physiological parameters with what the company claims is “an exceptionally high level of accuracy”. The algorithm recognises activity, measures energy expenditure, heart rate and other physiological data.
The device can be tailored to match different needs, with immediate feedback on lifestyle choices, enabling the wearer to identify – and limit – unhealthy habits, while persuading lifestyle changes to adopt healthier diet and activity habits.
Cloudtag is at CES 2016 – stand 73210
