The human body is a complex dynamic system that offers researchers, entrepreneurs, and innovators a wealth of data. Future advances in medical devices will be based on gathering and leveraging this data. This webinar covers making measurements with a prototype. The focus is on getting a quick prototype to test the sensor, the location on [...]
June 26, 2018 - Sunnyvale CA, Voler Systems is excited to announce the availability of the Universal Health-Sensor Platform that enables gathering data much quicker and innovating that much faster. The Universal Health-Sensor Platform allows firms to save time and money when prototyping wearable devices that gather physiological data. The Universal Health-Sensor Platform allows firms [...]
We are excited to be featured in Sensors Online and look forward to the 2018 Medical Sensors Design Conference in a few weeks. At the Medical Sensors Design Conference in San Jose, Voler will be demonstrating their Universal Health-Sensor Platform. Voler enables your fastest path to capturing and transmitting patient data with a pre-engineered prototype [...]
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 [...]
We are excited to at MDTX 2018 and thrilled to be listing in Chris DeMartino's "These Presentations Turned Heads at MDTX Day 2" article about the conference. Here is what Chris DeMartino, Technical Editor at Electronic Design, had to say about Walt Maclay's talk. "Walt Maclay of Voler Systems focused in on “Building a Better [...]
AR/VR technologies have become big industries with mainstream availability. Total spending on AR/VR products and services was $11 billion in 2017 and excited to grow to be $215 billion in 2021. Augmented reality (AR) is an "augmented" view of the physical, real-world environment which displays computer-generated sound, video, graphics or GPS data while still viewing [...]
Many mobile applications use sensors to monitor various activities- movement, sound, temperature, and the like. The sensors, if "always on" in full power would shorten battery life. Recent chip developments enable applications and devices to operate in a low power mode until they detect the signal that wakes them up and activates them for the [...]
