Realtime Technologies unveils wearable health sensor research platform

Realtime Technologies : 17 July, 2008  (New Product)
Ireland-based Realtime Technologies has launched SHIMMER, a hardware research platform designed for wearable health sensing in both connected and wireless environments.
SHIMMER - which stands for Sensing Health with Intelligence, Modularity, Mobility, and Experimental Reusability - incorporates a technology that Realtime has licensed from Intel.

The platform features a 2GB removable storage capacity and low-power standards-based wireless communication technologies that enable standalone applications such as robust motion capture. SHIMMER can also stream data to other devices to expand the scope of research applications. Customer shipments have already begun.

The announcement was made in conjunction with a trade mission to New York sponsored by Enterprise Ireland and led by Ireland's new Prime Minister, Brian Cowen, TD. The licensing deal was facilitated by Enterprise Ireland, who made the original introduction between the two companies.

When used as part of the BioMOBIUS Research Platform, which was developed by the Technology Research for Independent Living (TRIL) Centre located in Ireland, SHIMMER helps researchers reduce the time spent developing core foundation technologies, allowing them to focus on their own specific research and, subsequently, reducing overall development time for advanced medical devices.

Realtime Technologies sees the development of SHIMMER as a significant opportunity to feed the research ecosystem that ultimately serves to improve patient care and quality of life.

Commenting on the agreement and product launch, Realtime Technologies' chief executive , Paddy White, noted, 'We are excited to be working with Intel and we look forward to bringing SHIMMER to a broader market. It's an excellent example of how an industry leader such as Intel can work with specialised companies like Realtime to collaborate on product development and improve time-to-market for enabling new technology.'
