David Kotz (Dartmouth) with Kelly Caine (Clemson), Josiah Hester (Northwestern), Sarah Lord, Jacob Sorber (Clemson), Students & Staff
- A bracelet ‘hub’ for a body-area mHealth network.
- Secure, multi-application mHealth platform.
- Always on – and always with you.
- Battery life of one week to one month.
- Communicates discreetly with its wearer.
- Supports apps that monitor stress, physical activity,
- and exercise in free-living conditions.
Key Science Methods & Advances
- Secure memory isolation across multiple apps
- – on a low power embedded microcontroller.
- Interactive graphical visualization of battery-lifetime
- forecast, allowing developers to optimize apps.
- Methods to measure stress in free-living activities.
- Novel sensing devices:
- Ultra-low-power EDA (GSR) sensor wristband.
- Theraband force-measurement handle.
Results & Impact
- Open-hardware, open-source platform.
- Battery lifetime lasting weeks or months.
- Interactive resource-profiling tool predicts battery lifetime within 6-10% of the measured lifetime.
- Stress-measurement app with F1 score > 70%
