Suunto has decided to introduce a new medical version of the Movesense sensor to the platform, Movesense MD. The Movesense MD is capable of recording single channel clinical quality ECG, motion and temperature signals, processing and sending the measurement data wirelessly to smartphones via Bluetooth Low Energy. Movesense MD will be certified as a class IIa Medical Device, according to the CE medical directive and is manufactured under ISO 60601 and ISO 13485 standards. The Movesense sensor, which is just 36.6mm in diameter and less than 10 grams, includes a built-in accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, heart rate and ECG monitor, and temperature sensor, making it a powerful engine for health monitoring.
Versatile enough to replace years of hardware development for a startup and to integrate with established companies’ existing products, Movesense provides comprehensive data that can be used to monitor health status, support healthy lifestyle, and aid rehabilitation programs, among other varied applications.
Movesense MD is currently undergoing reviews related to the medical certification and will be commercially available as soon as the registration has been granted. Developing applications for the Movesense MD sensor is already possible with existing elements of the Movesense platform which includes an open sensor API, software libraries and source code for building compatible mobile apps for iOS and Android, sample code modules for the sensor, desktop simulator for the sensor software, and physical accessories for attaching the sensor in different ways.
