Altia Systems Home - Clothing+ Pay with your phone | Isis Mobile Wallet® Proteus gains de novo FDA clearance for ingestible biomedical sensor Proteus Biomedical's Raisin system Proteus Digital Health, formerly known as Proteus Biomedical, has become the first company to receive Food and Drug Administration clearance for an ingestible biomedical sensor that monitors medication adherence. The FDA granted 510(k) premarket approval to the Proteus Ingestible Event Marker (IEM) as a de novo medical device, meaning that there was no similar product on the market, four years after Redwood City, Calif.-based Proteus first sought clearance. A related wireless sensor patch worn on the skin gained FDA clearance in 2010 because there were predicate devices previously cleared by the FDA. The IEM sensor, which can be embedded into a pill, is activated by stomach fluid, then transmits a signal through the body to the skin patch, indicating that a patient has ingested medication. The American regulatory process was more drawn-out, as Proteus first sought FDA clearance for both the IEM and the patch in 2008.
Epiphany Eyewear Audioair Wants To Unlock Audio From Muted TVs Everywhere And Give Your Local Bar A New Way To Advertise If you’ve ever been in a sports bar with your friends to watch a big game, you’ve likely run into the “muting” problem. While the bar may have two dozen TVs, each might be playing a different game, and there’s either too much sound or none at all. At most local restaurants, bars, airports and health clubs, you’ll find TVs muted for this very reason. Some have opted to, say, put speakers on tables in their bars to project sound more directly, but the problem is that this puts a damper on any socializing you planned to do with your friends and fellow bar mates. Durango, Colorado-based Airborne Media is hoping to offer another solution with a new product called Audioair, which aims to turn smartphones into your own personal listening device to help unlock sound from the tens of millions of muted TVs out there. But how does it work, you ask?

As these devices come to market, they have the potential to help both patients and clinicians monitor vital signs and symptoms. 1 of 11 Wearable health technology is drawing serious attention in the press and for good reason. Such devices will likely transform medical care in unimagined ways, turning science fiction in science fact. ABI Research has projected that by 2016, wearable wireless medical device sales will reach more than 100 million devices annually. Devices worn on or close to the body are expected to produce the most ground-breaking innovations, according to IMS Research, the research partner of Wearable Technologies, and Theo Ahadome, senior analyst at IMS Research. Ahadome added that the latest figures projected for wearable technologies speak volumes about where the sector is headed.
