LMD to present: “Tools not Toys – Regulated Medical Devices Bundled with Phones” at eMEC 2019

Electronica Medical Electronics Conference (eMEC)
ICM München, November 14, 2019

Transforming diagnostic AI, telemedicine and early disease detection with clinically-accurate vital signs monitoring using only smartphones

September , 2019, Lausanne, Switzerland:  Leman Micro Devices (LMD), the developer of regulated consumer healthcare products that is backed by major players within the mobile device industry,  is presenting new insights into the future of e-health at the electronica Medical Electronics Conference (eMEC) which runs alongside productronica 2019 at the ICM Munich. 

Focused on the innovations and huge opportunities that burgeoning developments in medical electronics are poised to bring to global healthcare, eMEC attracts a highly-knowledgeable cohort of professionals from industry, research and medicine.   Dr Chris Elliott, co-founder of LMD, will present “Tools not Toys – Regulated Medical Devices Bundled with Phones. He will look beyond the narrow view of wearables to the next revolution in health – clinically-accurate and regulated medical devices that are small enough and cheap enough to be bundled into every smartphone. This is transformative – they are free to the user like the phone camera; always with you; and medically accurate. He will examine how enabling people to self-monitor their health through medically-accurate vital signs measurements will assist diagnosis of disease, enable remote clinically-accurate vital signs measurements during telemedicine appointments with physicians, and provide big data for use in research, insurance companies and healthcare providers. 

The challenge is to make devices that are small enough and cheap enough and which make accurate clinical measurements that satisfy the demands of the European CE Mark, US FDA and China FDA clearance and the equivalent in all the other countries where the phones will be sold. The presentation will illustrate that opportunity and challenge by presenting a device, e-Checkup™, that is already in batch production and which is being evaluated by several phone makers. From there, it will look to the future for such devices and the medical benefits that they will bring. As well as the direct benefits of early detection and timely monitoring of disease, their data will transform diagnostic AI and telemedicine.
