The Byteflies Sensor Dot: a miniature vital signs lab

Capable of accurately measuring 5 signals (with more on the way), the tiny Byteflies Sensor Dot offers a software/hardware platform for the development of diverse wearable health applications that rely on continuous physiologic monitoring. With the launch of the Sensor Dot, a brand-new arsenal of powerful, clinically relevant tools becomes available to medical and pharma companies for the first time.


The challenges of continuous clinical-grade monitoring

Current wearable health technologies consist mainly of consumer wristbands or large, unwieldy or uncomfortable devices used in specific circumstances. The complexities of health and disease far surpass the uses of run-of-the-mill step counts and heart rate measurements, and form factor is another limiting aspect of the current state-of-the-art.

In order to benefit from the winning combination of big data and AI, you need a device that is capable of collecting high-quality data. In the context of wearables, this means that versatility is a key differentiator: a solution must be able to measure any vital sign, anywhere, at any time with maximum user comfort.

The smallest multimodal device on the market

Squeezed into a package the size of a fingertip, the sensors built into the Byteflies Sensor Dot measure the following signals: photoplethysmogram (PPG), electrocardiogram (ECG), respiration, motion, and electrodermal activity (EDA).

Offered in kits of 5, each Dot is compatible with a wide range of patch designs, allowing it to be placed anywhere on the body. Quickly develop your wearable health idea into a viable product by identifying the perfect combination of signal quality and user comfort.

To support the most streamlined workflow possible, the Byteflies Dock enables hassle-free charging and data upload to the Byteflies Cloud – just snap Sensor Dots magnetically into the Dock.


Game-changing innovations just around the corner

Is your wearable health concept based on other signals? Not to worry, it’s in the works. Additional sensors under development include:

  • temperature
  • bioacoustics
  • oxygen saturation (SpO2)
  • electroencephalography (EEG)
  • electromyogram (EMG)
  • electrogastrography (EGG)
  • electrooculography (EOG)
  • ... and more!

Determining correlations between multiple signals delivers powerful insights into the interplay between physiological systems. The result? An unprecedented level of medical insight. Our Sensor Dots will soon be capable of synchronizing with each other to unlock multimodal signal analysis.
