wearable medical deviceYou can now build your very own, customized medical wearable device. A company out of Scotland, Glasgow Neuro Ltd., is offering all of the individual components you need, along with a bio-amplifier that communicates to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth.

Dr. Bernd Porr, has been instrumental in educating the public, via a series of videos, on applications and techniques for measuring various biosignals. After requests for a fully-assembled bio-amplifier, the ATTYS device is now available. The ATTYS can amplify electrocardiography (ECG), electromyography (EMG), and electroencephalography (EEG) signals, and can transmit raw, uncompressed signal data at 24 bits. Being able to see the original signal source is a feature particularly useful for scientific studies.

Could the ATTYS system provide an efficient way for medical device designers to develop and prototype new wearable devices?
