LMD verwendet die äußerst bewährte Riva-Rocci-Technik zur Messung des Blutdrucks. Anstatt jedoch eine Manschette am Arm zu verwenden, teilt die Gaming-App von LMD dem Patienten mit, wie stark er den Finger auf den in das Smartphone eingebauten Sensor drücken muss. Weitere Funktionen liefern medizinisch präzise Messwerte von Körpertemperatur und Sauerstoffgehalt im Blut, Pulsfrequenz und Atemfrequenz. Alle fünf Messungen werden jederzeit an jedem Ort in weniger als 60 Sekunden durchgeführt, gefolgt von einfachen Anweisungen und ohne weiteres Zubehör. Der Patient muss sich nicht ausziehen; alles läuft ohne Umstände, ohne Schmerzen und ohne „Weißkittelsyndrom“ ab. Die App ist auf dem Smartphone vorinstalliert und sofort einsatzbereit, ohne dass für den Smartphonenutzer Kosten anfallen. Während der Lebensdauer des Smartphones ist keine Kalibrierung erforderlich. Leman Micro Devices (LMD) wurde 2010 gegründet und hat seinen Sitz in Lausanne (Schweiz), im Herzen des „Health Valley“ und in der Nähe der Universität EPFL und größerer Sensorunternehmen. Finanziert von Business Angels, Wagniskapital und zwei größeren Akteuren im Smartphonesektor, besteht das erste Produkt des nach ISO 13485 zertifizierten Unternehmens aus einer einzigartigen Sensor- und Softwarekombination, die den Blutdruck und weitere Vitalzeichen mithilfe eines Smartphones medizinisch präzise misst. Health Sensor & App von LMD wird in diesem Jahr voraussichtlich die Zulassung einer internationalen Regulierungsbehörde erhalten.


LMD utilise la technique éprouvée Riva-Rocci pour mesurer la pression sanguine. Toutefois, au lieu de vous demander d'exercer une pression sur votre bras, l'application LMD vous indique avec quelle intensité vous devez presser votre doigt sur le capteur LMD intégré au smartphone. D'autres fonctionnalités vous donnent une lecture médicalement précise de votre température corporelle ainsi que de la saturation du sang en oxygène, du rythme cardiaque et du rythme respiratoire. Ces cinq mesures peuvent être prises n'importe où et n'importe quand en moins de 60 secondes en suivant des instructions simples et sans aucun accessoire supplémentaire. Pas besoin de se déshabiller; pas de complication, pas de douleur et pas de "syndrome de la blouse blanche". L'application, qui est chargée en usine dans le smartphone, est immédiatement prête à l'emploi sans aucun coût pour l'utilisateur du smartphone. Aucun étalonnage n'est requis pendant toute la durée de vie du smartphone. Mark-Eric Jones, CEO de LMD, a ajouté: “Les consommateurs sont désormais prêts à opter pour des smartphones équipés d'origine avec un système de surveillance de la santé médicalement précis, plutôt que pour les produits actuels qui ne sont pas homologués et manquent souvent de précision. La plupart des appareils portables ne mesurent pas du tout la santé, mais seulement l'activité, tandis d'autres solutions sont très onéreuses. Or le marché est immense – Le CEO d'Apple, Tim Cook, a dit que les produits de santé pouvaient "éclipser" le marché des smartphones – et nous pensons que, de même qu'aujourd'hui personne ne voudrait acheter un smartphone dépourvu d'appareil photo ou de GPS de haute qualité, sous peu les utilisateurs ne pourront plus imaginer que le package n'inclue pas des fonctions de surveillance de la santé.” En outre, a-t-il déclaré: “Notre produit a fait ses preuves en laboratoire et la FDA a décidé que c'est notre appareil, et non le smartphone, qui est l'élément à approuver – c'est-à-dire que dans ce cas le smartphone est considéré comme un "accessoire". Nous pensons soumettre notre application Health Sensor & App pour approbation et certification dans le courant de cette année.” Fondée en 2010, la société Leman Micro Devices (LMD) est basée à Lausanne, Suisse, au cœur de la "Vallée de la santé" et à proximité de l'École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne et des grandes sociétés de capteurs pour téléphones. Certifiée ISO 13485, la société est financée par les Business Angels, du capital-risque et deux grands acteurs du secteur des smartphones. Son premier produit est la combinaison unique d'un capteur et d'un logiciel qui mesure avec une précision médicale la pression sanguine et d'autres signes vitaux en utilisant un smartphone. L'application LMD Health Sensor & App devrait obtenir l'approbation des autorités réglementaires internationales cette année.

BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leman Micro Devices (LMD), the developer of regulated consumer healthcare products that is backed by major players within the mobile device industry, believes that the smartphone market - which has seen a slowing down due to a lack of significant new features – is set to be rejuvenated as handset makers include, for the first time, medically-accurate health monitoring systems within their next-generation devices. Speaking at Mobile World Congress 2016, Ben Wood, an analyst at CCS Insight, commented there is a “ growing view that design features of smartphones have reached a plateau”. This is a problem for handset makers hoping to upgrade customers to newer devices; so much of the activity in the smartphone market over the past year has centred on newer makers who are delivering low-cost, feature rich devices. However, healthcare, as Apple CEO Tim Cook says, could ‘dwarf’ the smartphone market, so if accurate, reliable vital signs measurement can be delivered via your handset, this could be as significant as the inclusion of a high quality camera or GPS. Recently, LMD introduced its V-Sensor health sensor and app - the only smartphone-integrated solution that measures blood pressure and other vital signs with medical accuracy. The price, power consumption and size of the V-sensor is no more than other components in the phone, so there is no negative impact to users, either in price or performance. Crucially, the phone does not become a regulated medical device but is an accessory to LMD’s V-sensor, which will be the regulated element. Commented LMD CEO, Mark-Eric Jones: “ Smartphone makers are urgently looking out for the next big differentiating factor. Accurate blood pressure monitoring using just your smartphone is of massive interest - hypertension affects a quarter of the world’s adult population. Data from Rock Health, a venture funding company dedicated to digital health, indicates three times as many people track their BP as their heart rate, yet heart rate sensors sell in large numbers.” He concludes: “ Therefore we believe that the market is set for significant growth in the very near future as users learn to rely on their phone not just for communication and entertainment, but also as part of their daily health routine.”


LAUSANNE, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leman Micro Devices (LMD), the developer of accredited consumer healthcare products that is backed by major players within the mobile device industry, has announced that its Health Sensor & App - the only smartphone-integrated solution that measures blood pressure and other vital signs with medical accuracy – is being readied for submission to FDA and other regulators worldwide. LMD uses the well-proven Riva-Rocci technique to measure blood pressure. However, instead of using a cuff on the arm, the LMD gaming App tells you how hard to push your finger against LMD’s sensor built into the smartphone. Other features give medically-accurate readings of your body temperature as well as blood oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiration rate. All five measurements are performed anywhere at any time in under 60 seconds by following simple instructions and without any extra accessories. There is no need to undress; there is no fuss, no pain and no ‘White Coat’ syndrome. The App is factory-loaded in the smartphone and ready to use out-of-the box at no cost to the smartphone user. No calibration is required for the life of the smartphone. Sir George Alleyne, Director Emeritus of the Pan American Health Organisation comments: “Hypertension is one of the world's most neglected killers, affecting a quarter of the adult population. It’s easily treated if you know you’ve got it; a reliable blood-pressure measuring device costing less than $5 would save many lives.” Adds LMD CEO, Mark-Eric Jones: “The world is ready for smartphones that come with a built-in medically-accurate heath monitoring system, rather than current products which are not approved and often inaccurate. Most wearable devices do not measure health at all, only activity, while other solutions carry a hefty price tag. Yet the market is immense – Apple’s CEO Tim Cook says healthcare products could ‘dwarf’ the smartphone market – and we believe that just as today no one would buy a smartphone without a high quality camera or GPS, very soon users will expect accurate healthcare functions to be included in the package.” He continues: “Our product is proven in the lab and already the FDA has ruled that it is our device, not the smartphone itself which is the regulated element – in this instance, the smartphone is regarded as an ‘accessory’. We expect to submit our Health Sensor & App for full approval and certification later this year.” Founded in 2010, Leman Micro Devices (LMD) is based in Lausanne, Switzerland, in the heart of the “Health Valley” and close to EPFL University and major phone sensor companies. Funded by Business Angels, Venture Capital, and two major players in the smartphone sector, the ISO 13485 certified company’s first product is a unique sensor and software combination that measures blood pressure and other vital signs to medical accuracy using a smartphone. The LMD Health Sensor & App is expected to garner international regulatory body approval this year.


LOSANNA, Svizzera--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leman Micro Devices (LMD), produttore di accreditate soluzioni per la salute supportato dai principali attori del settore dei dispositivi mobili, ha annunciato che Health Sensor & App, l'unico prodotto per la misurazione della pressione e di altri segni vitali integrabile in uno smartphone a offrire accuratezza medica, è ora pronto a richiedere l'approvazione della FDA e di altri organismi normativi internazionali.


El director ejecutivo de LMD, Mark-Eric Jones, añade: “El mundo está listo para los smartphones que vienen con un sistema de monitoreo de salud integrado clínicamente preciso, más que para los productos actuales que no están aprobados y que con frecuencia no son precisos. La mayoría de los dispositivos ponibles no miden la salud, sino solo la actividad, mientras que otras soluciones salen muy caras. Sin embargo, el mercado es enorme: el director ejecutivo de Apple, Tim Cook, señala que los productos de la atención médica podrían empequeñecer el crecimiento del mercado de los smartphones, y creemos que hoy en día nadie compraría un smartphone sin una cámara de alta calidad o un GPS; muy pronto, los usuarios esperarán tener funciones de atención médica precisas incluidas en el paquete.”.
