TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

This technology offer is a 60GHz compact radar solution for smart wellness. The radar provides real-time detection of presence, movement, breathing or lack thereof, and falls by measuring breathing patterns and vital signs. The solution can also provide sleep monitoring services for sleep care, sleep quality scoring, and recommendation of lifestyle patterns for better sleep. The sleep data accumulated from the radar can be analyzed for illness prediction, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The solution provides a broad range of applications for smart wellness and smart offices. The radar detects:

  • Presence, movement, patterns
  • Incidents including breathing, lack there-of, slip & fall
  • Sleep data
  • Illness prediction from breathing patterns

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The following are the key technical specifications for the vital sign monitoring 60GHz compact radar:

  • Frequency: 60 GHz
  • Vital Signs: Respiration Rate, Heart Rate
  • Resolution: 5 cm
  • Cycle Time: 100 ms Detection Range: 0.1 m – 5 m
  • Motion: Presence Detection, Fall Detection, Breathing Pattern Detection, Movement Pattern Detection
  • Field of View: 120° / 120° (Azimuth / Elevation)

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

This compact radar allows checking health conditions by reading vital signs like respiration and heart rate without having to wear any devices or using intrusive cameras and microphones. It can be applied in numerous fields and use cases in hospitals, elderly care centers, and even individual homes for general consumers to track presence, incidents, sleep care, and even analysis for illness prediction.

Unique Value Proposition

  • Privacy is completely protected with no cameras, no microphones, and no wearables needed.
  • Simple plug and play installation
  • Compact size that does not interfere with interior designs
  • Significant and reliable, real-time data is collected from diverse organizations building a robust database for the medical industry
  • Thousands of autonomous and continuous vital sign measurements provide meaningful insights for the users’ health in real-time
  • The radar system can be integrated into a collaborator's platform via API; the technology owner is also open to testbedding.

The technology owner is keen to work with telehealth platform operators, health institutions, nursing homes, device R&D companies, etc., to co-develop/integrate and/or testbed this technology.
