Testing the connection and performance between human vitals and wearable biosensors


New innovations in wearable technologies present endless possibilities for consumer and business use cases in health, fitness, sports, and more.
Devices powered by connected biosensors, software, firmware, and advanced algorithms can do many things, including enabling important new medical treatments, inform consumers about changes in their health conditions or patterns, provide real-time data driven remedies and suggestions, and help athletes at the highest levels find new ways to improve their performance.

But turning these opportunities into reality requires overcoming some complex challenges – especially when it comes to ensuring the wearable technologies perform as designed in real-world use with humans.

  • Integrating real-world scenarios for human-subject based testing while managing liabilities and compliance considerations
  • Recruiting human subjects with varying attributes and habit patterns
  • Finding and outfitting those subjects for effective device testing and data validation
  • Writing and tuning algorithms for maximum accuracy
  • Envisioning and designing the proper test processes
  • Extracting and analyzing test data and feeding it back in to the development lifecycle for improving the device
  • Setting up or accessing a testing lab with the advanced capabilities needed

“The power of wearables comes from connecting our senses to sensors.”

Matt Miesnieks CEO of Dekko
