Developer update:  4 vitals monitoring walk through  and introduction to the ecosystem with Jean Baptiste Marceau.

Ever wondered about how your activity level affects your health? Ever wanted to improve it? Being active and fit is essential for a healthy lifestyle. Whether you’re an elite athlete, a daily walker or somewhere in between, an active lifestyle contributes to a healthy mind, body and outlook on life. 

SensoTRACK is a new wearable fitness device that helps you “outperform yourself” by sensing, tracking and managing your activity data. It measures heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and respiration rate. It counts steps, calories burned, senses your speed, activity level, geolocation, altitude, body posture, and pace, while tracking parameters you enter, such as weight, body mass index (BMI), blood sugar and emotional state. SensoTRACK also takes into account your specific activity – walking, running, cycling, and other activities. – and models its measurements for that form of activity to more accurately gauge performance.

 How do I get One?

We have been developing a SensoTRACK with embedded stereo music for long time and are happy to share it with you now, free of any additional charges, just pledge for any of the SensoTRACK levels.

Because SensoTrack is worn on the ear, in proximity to the temporal artery, Its biometric readouts are more accurate than other monitoring devices which are worn on the wrist.SensoTRACK is the only wearable device to provide moment-by-moment blood pressure and respiration rate readings. Our test results show that SensoTRACK’s accuracy level is on par with FDA-approved vital-sign monitoring devices.

The inspired SensoTRACK user experience provides you the exact information you need to meet your fitness goals. SensoTRACK gives you options, as users can have real-time data automatically recorded OR can manually enter workout-specific data, such as goals, into the user-friendly SensoTRACK ecosystem.

The SensoTRACK forum allows you to download workouts and routines developed by professionals or upload your own workouts and routines to share with others, all for free.

SensoTRACK is far more than a device for simply measuring biometric and geophysical data. Because performance improvement requires activity feedback, SensoTRACK is also a sports companion designed motivate and help you out. The personal trainer uses SensoTRACK's on-board sensors to get a comprehensive overview of the activity and how your body is responding, formulating its advice accordingly. This allows the personal trainer algorithms to react dynamically to the activity, helping you push your limits and motivating you to reach your workout goals.

  • Overview: Get a quick overview of your daily, weekly or monthly workouts using the customizable, cloud-based dashboard. At a glance, see your vitals, calories burnt, steps taken or any of the other measurements SensoTRACK offers. Having vitals and physical data displayed simultaneously gives you a comprehensive picture of your body trends.
  • Archives: Automatically categorize and save your workouts in a secure cloud environment and access them from anywhere in the world. 
  • Detailed Summary: Get in-depth insight into each workout and obtain a better understanding of your body. You can also access location based vitals and physical parameters on a map overlay of routes taken.
  • Advanced Analytics: Record and analyze all of your biometric and geophysical parameters and allow SensoTRACK’s advanced algorithms to transform these data points into detailed visual representations of your performance. Then, optimize future workouts using the SensoTRACK software or the insights offered by your own trainer or coach.
The SensoTRACK Web Portal is an amazing tool for trainers, and coaches who need a comprehensive real-time analysis tool, or individuals who just want a fun and a pleasant visualization experience.

The application is currently supported on IOS and Andriod, with a windows phone version in the works.

SensoTRACK can also be used in standalone mode, for times when no other communication device is available. Its integrated memory allows the user to store up to a week's worth of activities in the device itself. However location based services cannot be obtained in the current version's standalone mode. We plan to integrate a GPS chip into future SensoTRACK versions, eliminating its dependence on any external devices.

  • The Gyroscope/Accelerometer continuously tracks body position and acts as a pedometer.  
  • Our proprietary Optical Biosensor measures heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation with the highest accuracy and precision.
  • The Micro-USB Port connects your SensoTRACK to most devices supporting a USB connection enabling you to charge, sync and update your device and data.
  •  The built-in directional Speaker enables users to receive notices during a workout, such as: blood pressure, heart rate and time elapsed. It will also allow the integrated personal trainer function to provide heads-up dynamic feedback on your activity and performance. SensoTRACK M uses high definition stereo speakers to provide an excellent listening experience.
  • The Silicone Ear Piece, built from a soft medical grade bio-plastic, ensures a comfortable and secure fit. The silicone is a non-irritant to the skin and safe for everyday use.
  • The high-quality, Swiss-engineered Battery ensures SensoTRACK is fully operational for up to 24 hours.
  •  The Gyroscope/Accelerometer continuously tracks body position and acts as a pedometer.    
  • The Injection Molded Shell fits comfortably around the ear and offers weather and sweat resistance.  

 SensoTRACK emphasizes security and privacy at every phase of data capture and transfer:

  • SensoTRACK uses a government-approved, military-grade encrypted processor, making it one of the safest data storage platforms.
  • SensoTRACK transmits data via Bluetooth LE (Low-Energy) from SensoTRACK to a smart device in an encrypted form. During transfer, the data is further encoded and can only be decoded by the SensoTRACK application.
  • No third party company or individual is allowed access to SensoTRACKuser data.

Join the team and contribute to the development of the new generation of well-being and activity monitoring and managing devices. Be a part of this project and get your SensoTRACK before its official market release.

The process of developing of SensoTRACK has been one of discovery, marked by challenges. Sensogram founder and SensoTRACK architect, Dr. Vahram Mouradian highlights the journey:

I wanted to know how the intensity of a workout affects my body. So, I started collecting gadgets – pedometers, heart rate monitors – but I could not find any device that measured vital signs such as blood pressure and respiration rate on the move. I wanted something that could simultaneously measure multiple biomedical and physiological parameters and display that data on a screen of my choosing. This was the objective that instigated the development of SensoTRACK.

Curiosity overtook me. I wanted to see how different exercise conditions affected various health parameters. For example, would walking fast raise my heart rate enough to reach the optimal level for heart muscle training? I found the answer was “no,” so I ran slowly. Using SensoTRACKI found that taking larger steps let me achieve the desired heart rate. Afterward, when I wanted to lose weight, SensoTRACK showed me that taking large steps raised my heart rate, but did not yield the expected calorie burn. SensoTRACK feedback showed me that smaller more frequent steps burned more calories.

The goal was to create a device that shows users precisely how exercise affects each biometric parameter. While the objective was clear, the path was difficult. First, the device needed to be able to capture desired information. Second, the device must be wearable; therefore, it required a body location that could be both functional and convenient. Third, the device had to support mobility; thus, no environmental or physical artefacts such as sunlight, wind, electromagnetic waves and motion could affect its operation.

We aren’t resting on our achievements and will look to improve where possible. Future software, such as SensoTRACK PRO, will be released for team-based monitoring at the professional level. This application will allow detailed analysis, evaluating and comparing the biometric parameters of different team members simultaneously, allowing a coach to compare each player's performance and adjust training regimens accordingly. The coach's smart device (which is running the SensoTRACK PRO software) will display Information such as steps taken, maximum speed and calories burnt of each individual team-member, providing a detailed understanding of player fitness.
