Pitfalls of Medically Accurate Measurements In this webinar, Walt Maclay covers common bio-sensors used in wearables for remote patient monitoring and how to get medically accurate measurements. Heart rate. Heart rate is simple to implement in theory, but difficult to measure on the wrist. Measuring the electrical EKG signal requires good contact with the skin, [...]
We are excited to see the kids experimenting with the Everbright Wall Display, a networked array of LEDs, at Milpitas Library. The are kids having fun manipulating the 476 light dials on the light wall, to create different patterns by adjusting each of these RGB LED dials. The Everbright Light Wall will be on display [...]
Here are some amazing robots that we would like to share with you. Hope that you will be as inspired as we are!

We are committed to providing life-changing opportunities for young, aspiring individuals. This year we had someone from the Japan Biodesign program visit for three weeks as an extern. Below is one of the conversations that Walt Maclay and Rio Valdes had with Moe Sasaki and her startup team.
In this video, Walt Maclay discusses the issues involved with bringing wearable medical devices from an idea to FDA approval based on his firms many experiences. He explores areas including user interface issues, battery life, different sensing technologies, data security, and verification to meet FDA and CE requirements.
Transcript of Walt Maclay "Battery Limitations for Wearable Devices" video Walt Maclay: If battery technology advanced like semiconductors have, you would have a device the size of a pinhead that could power your car and it'd cost a penny. Unfortunately, we're never going to have that. If you want to get much, much denser [...]
Below is an edited transcript of the video: Building a Better Medical Device and Getting It Cleared Through FDA Overview Voler offers electronic design services for wearable devices and IOT devices. We have helped a number of firms build medical devices that have been approved by the FDA, but here I will be [...]
In case you missed Walt Maclay's "Low Data Rate Links for IoT" presentation, here is the video. Long range low power wireless communication for IoT With wide-scale IoT solutions being implemented, we are seeing an emerging set of new wireless technologies being developed. The focus of much IoT innovation is on low [...]
If you missed Walt Maclay's talk on "Ultra Low-Power Design Techniques", he shared design techniques to overcome battery limitations often required for IoT, home health, mhealth, and implantable medical and/or wearable devices. It takes a combination of system design, circuit design, and software to achieve an ultra low-power solution. Walt covers the key power saving techniques [...]
