B-Secur in collaboration with US firm on wearables

Ben Carter, chief commercial officer at B-Secur

BELFAST technology specialist B-Secur, which develops pioneering heart monitoring technology, has linked up with Maxim Integrated Products to launch an ultra-low power sensor hub that delivers health information and insights to wearable wrist, finger and chest applications, such as smart watches, rings and chest straps.

The collaboration with Nasdaq-listed and world leading technology company Maxim is seen as a significant development in enabling consumers to experience technology in the connected world using their unique heartbeat.

And for B-Secur, which is based at Catalyst Inc, it comes just weeks after it having received US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its innovative ECG software HeartKey.

Ben Carter, chief commercial officer at B-Secur said: “Partnering with a company like Maxim Integrated, combining our FDA cleared health algorithms and their low power ECG sensor, has allowed us to create a fully integrated turnkey medical grade solution that speeds time to market for healthcare and consumer applications.”

Kris Ardis of Maxim Integrated added: “This announcement is a great example of how we have worked together with B-Secur to incorporate intelligent features in low power, small devices.”

Securing FDA clearance for HeartKey earlier has been a significant development for B-Secur and for heart health innovation worldwide.

For the first time, companies making consumer wearable devices can now generate advanced medical-grade wellness and health data from any device and platform.
