Wearable technology

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
  • GSR
  • (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
  • Upgradability
  • User Interface engines
  • Bluetooth (LE) and WiFi stacks
  • Translated & tested biomedical algorithms for embedded use
  • Low power design & features

Biomedical Algorithms

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.

3 Prototyping

Work in 2 steps (alpha & beta) towards the product including all user requirements.

4 Industrialization

Industrialization, certification. Making the product production & sales ready.

5 Production

Flexible production depending on client and business. Setup by 2M for initial, small or midsize series to high-volume production in Asia.
