Developing a smartwatch to predict respiratory infections

Developing a smartwatch to predict respiratory infections

In 2018, the US government's BARDA Division of Research, Innovation and Ventures (DRIVe), under the Department of Health and Human Services, partnered with Empatica to develop a wearable and algorithm that would predict respiratory infections, in an effort to mitigate the potentially catastrophic impact of future influenza pandemics. Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the partnership was renewed, and with BARDA’s support the project was pivoted to focus on the deployment of a wearable that will detect respiratory infections, including COVID-19, before the wearer displays any symptoms.

Creating employee health monitoring programs from the ground up

Creating employee health monitoring programs from the ground up

Workplace stress has chronically been a large issue in Japan, with over 60% of workers reporting intense worry or stress related to employment. In a revolutionary initiative to combat employee stress, Japanese multinational information and network technology company NEC launched a study using Embrace2 and the Research Portal, in which data was collected to develop a biomarker for chronic stress prediction. Following the successful validation of the algorithm, NEC is using the Empatica SDK to build an employee health monitoring application, thus creating a safe work environment, where employees can physically and mentally thrive, both within and outside the workplace.

Building research applications for higher engagement and data collection

Building research applications for higher engagement and data collection

Using the Empatica SDK and E4 wristband, researchers in Norway developed TimeOut – a skill-building assistive technology to be used by adults with ADHD to improve long-term mastery of self-regulatory abilities. TimeOut utilizes the E4 wristband and an algorithm developed by the researchers to monitor physiological signals. When the algorithm notices a rise in EDA levels, indicating heightened physiological arousal, while the user is exhibiting sedentary behavior, the smartphone application prompts training interventions for its users and provides a skill-building exercise on a mobile phone.
