Exmovere LLC plans to launch its new web-based "Exmocare" Bluetooth-enabled biosensor wristwatch service for augmenting proper medical supervision of the elderly.
The Exmocare wristwatch monitors its wearer's pulse, heart rate variability and skin conductance. The Exmocare wristwatch also monitors the subject's level of activity via built in accelerometer to determine whether the subject is active, inactive or sedentary.
It also can be used for rudimentary assessments of up to 10 different emotional states, including when its elderly wearer is relaxed, upbeat, worried, agitated, etc. The emotional data monitored and reported by the Exmocare wristwatch is based upon established algorithms and calculations relied upon in the fields of neuropsychology and biofeedback, and in Exmocare's internal testing has yielded accurate results (with a 25% margin of error).
Each wristwatch includes Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC compatible software. It processes user-configured alerts to families and care providers by SMS, email and/or instant messenger. Easy-to-interpret taskbar emoticons and graphs at each care provider account display changes in the wearer's emotional and physical activity.
Exmocare customers can sign up for subscription plans that in most cases come bundled with a pre-paid GSM Bluetooth mobile phone for transmitting the data to an online account. The 36-month Exmocare plan includes both a pre-paid phone and a GPS car-kit to monitor elderly drivers.
