VITAL SIGNS in mHealth
The greatest challenges facing the mHealth industry relate to creating relevant, low cost, cross platform products. LionsGate Technologies (LGTmedical) has solved these challenges for mobile vital signs monitoring. Through the development of a universal, audio-based interfacing framework, known as the Vital Signs DSP™, ultra-low cost, mobile vital signs monitoring has been achieved, connecting standard medical sensors with any mobile device. This first-of-its-kind, audio-based interface will make vital signs monitoring available to healthcare workers and consumers for a fraction of the price of current devices.
The company’s flagship product, the Phone Oximeter™, leverages the global ubiquity of mobile phones to provide non-invasive measurements of blood oxygen levels and heart rate. Initially prototyped in 2010, the Phone Oximeter™ is accurate, robust, portable and powered by the mobile device.
