Toshiba Corp. has introduced an intelligent wearable vital signs sensor moduleSmart healthcare Intelligent Monitor Engine & Ecosystem (Silmee)that concurrently senses information on key vital signs: ECG, pulse, body temperature and movements. The device can also deliver the data to smartphones and tablets with wireless technology, the firm added.

The recently developed Silmee includes a Pseudo-SoC analogue front end, a 32bit ARM processor chip and a dual mode Bluetooth bare chip in a 14.5 x 14.5mm small package. Simply adding a few devices to the module, such as an antenna, battery and sensor heads, achieves a completely wearable vital signs sensor system. Among the chips included in the module, the flexible and compact Pseudo-SoC analogue front end is a very effective approach to implementing vital signs sensors, and extends recent rapid progress in vital sign sensor technologies.

Toshiba will demonstrate a very compact prototype implementation of Silmee: a 25 x 60mm and 10g patch-type able to monitor all vital signs. Toshiba will contribute to the promotion of smart personal healthcare services by deploying the module and prototype terminal in a wide variety of smart healthcare service development and field trials.
