The Indian born CEO and co-founder of Switzerland-based SmartCardia, Srinivasan Murali has announced the launch of a new wearable device that can not only track the status of your heart but also provide information regarding your physical and emotional well-being.
The device, called The Inner You (INYU), is the result of a number of years of research at Embedded Systems Laboratory from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and works by tracking the physiological signals from the body, such as ECG, breathing, skin conductance and physical activity, and then sends it to smartphones or similar devices with the help of Bluetooth 4.0.
Murali revealed that the device will be priced at just Rs. 9,000 in order to make it more accessible to the general public.
"The user can see the signals immediately on his or her mobile phone. It can also be used for managing a healthy lifestyle, as it tracks the emotional and physical health aspects, such as the stress level, body fat and physical activity. I hope the device will be highly beneficial for India. It can be used to track Electrocardiogram (ECG), breathing and key vital signs of users, so that they can get timely feedback from the doctor", Murali said.
