2M has extensive experience with a large number of sensors, hardware solutions, embedded software and embedded algorithm development to create robust, accurate next generation wearables.
Results by making the best technological compromises
We believe that our true added value is in how we combine the various technologies into one single product. The ingredients that everybody uses our in essence the same, it’s about how you combine them that makes all the difference.
Wearable technology building blocks
Over the years we have built a large basket of building blocks. Building blocks that we can be used to reduce development time, money and reduce technical risk.
A large variety of standard and specialized vital body sensors and sensor combinations.
- Activity, Posture, 3/9 DOF Motion
- Electrocardiogram (ECG)
- PPG based HR, SPO2
- Breathing rate / Respiration
- (Contactless) temperature & humidity
- Distance / height
- Pressure / weight. Various sensing principles
- Bodily fluid analysis (blood, saliva etc)
- Raman spectrometry
- Photonic sensors
- Printed and textile sensors
Small (wearable) hardware platforms that can easily be modified for specific purposes including custom antenna design.
Low power design.
Device mechanics for small devices including waterproof designs in plastics, aluminium or metals.
Optics and opto-electronics.
Embedded software middleware platforms for various microcontrollers.
- Low level drivers
- User Interface engines
- Bluetooth (LE) and WiFi stacks
- Translated & tested biomedical algorithms for embedded use
- Low power design & features
Common functions for a number of default operations:
- Movement artifact correction
- Activity & posture filtering and feature extraction
- Quality indici
- Peak and feature detection using various techniques
Wearable technology & product creation process
The wearables 2M develops are created step by step in close cooperation with our partners and clients. This way everybody is at all times fully involved and can steer the development process. We believe by working truly together the best possible outcomes are realized.
1 Concept Definition
Joint understanding of problem, application & use context.
2 Proof of Concept
Focus on realizing & validating the core measurement function & algorithms.
Work in 2 steps (alpha & beta) towards the product including all user requirements.
Industrialization, certification. Making the product production & sales ready.
Flexible production depending on client and business. Setup by 2M for initial, small or midsize series to high-volume production in Asia.
