  • It's the next level of sensing and accuracy," says Dr. Leslie Saxon, Executive Director of the USC Center for Body Computing. “We’re basically taking this new technology  and creating an unprecedented understanding and engagement for people around their health.

  • The heart-shaped patch is a wearable adhesive containing photosensitive dyes that change color when exposed to UV rays ... It was designed in partnership with MC10, a health tech firm based in Cambridge, Mass., that specializes in flexible electronics.

  • MC10 is dedicated to bringing stretchable electronics to market. The company worked with L’Oréal on My UV Patch and has developed another device, the BioStamp Research Connect, which measures body motion, muscle activity, and heart rate. MC10 began selling the BioStamp to researchers and companies earlier this year. “It’s essentially a body-worn computer,” says Roozbeh Ghaffari, MC10’s cofounder and chief technology officer.

MC10 Reshapes Research - BioStamp Research Connect™ System

January 6, 2016

First Product to Leverage the Novel BioStamp® Conformal Sensing Platform; Provides a Complete Hardware and Software Solution for Researchers

Lexington, MA – January 6, 2016 MC10, Inc. today unveiled the BioStamp Research Connect System (BioStampRC™), providing researchers with an end to end solution for seamlessly gathering physiological data. Flexible body-worn sensors enable study subjects to move comfortably through regular activities in clinical or remote settings, simultaneously reducing observation error and improving data capture.

The BioStampRC system is the first fully-integrated solution that utilizes MC10’s proprietary BioStamp® technology platform to deliver wearable sensors that flex, bend and stretch to match the properties of the human body. Combined with MC10’s robust cloud-based software system, the BioStampRC system allows researchers to securely share data with colleagues and collaborators in real time, across multiple research sites. With their unique combination of wearability and tight skin coupling, the BioStamp Sensors can be placed simultaneously on multiple body locations to create rich profiles of human activity.

The BioStampRC product is an end-to-end system developed to enable researchers to gather the exact physiological data they need through a configurable, intuitive interface. The system offers:

  • Access to raw kinematic and surface biopotential data via
    • 6 degrees of freedom in inertial sensing with a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope and
    • Integrated electrodes to generate research quality signals which can be leveraged for surface electromyography (sEMG) and electro-cardiac activity
  • Study-centric tablet and web applications to easily integrate into the researcher workflow
  • Digital subject reports and other contextual data to supplement sensor data in a single system
  • Secure, organized data sets for easy management and download

The BioStampRC system has been in beta testing for several months with world-class institutions that specialize in the areas of motor skill rehabilitation, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiology and human performance. Dr. Paolo Bonato, Director of the Motion Analysis Laboratory at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, noted, “We are very impressed with the results of the BioStamp system tests that we have performed so far. The sensor is unobtrusive, very comfortable to wear, and it reliably collects data for extensive periods. Charging the sensor’s battery and checking the quality of the data being collected is simple. The system appears to be an ideal platform for many of our clinical research projects.”

“MC10’s mission is to create digital healthcare products that can better our understanding of, and ultimately improve, human health. The BioStampRC system is a great example of this mission,” said Scott Pomerantz, MC10’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

MC10 will be showcasing the technology at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV; please contact press@mc10inc.com for more information.

The BioStamp Research Connect system will be available starting in early 2016. For more information, visit MC10 online at www.mc10inc.com.
