Leman Micro DevicesNew smartphones in 2018 will be equipped with health sensors : Leman Micro Devices, developer of premium mobile healthcare devices that is backed by major players within the mobile industry, will address the upcoming Sensors Expo & Conference, McEnery Convention Centre, San Jose, California, June 27-29, with a paper that highlights how low cost sensor technology integrated into smartphones is likely to cause exponential growth in this life-saving sector. CEO Mark-Eric Jones from Leman Micro Devices will say that presently there is a vicious circle: Only a few smartphones with medical healthcare features are sold because the retail price is too high, and these mobile devices cost too much because only a few new phones are sold.

New smartphone with health sensors
The company’s V-Sensor health sensor and app - the only smartphone integrated solution that measures blood pressure and other vital signs with medical accuracy - addresses this issue as it has been designed for low cost high volume markets from the outset.

Leman’s proprietary ASIC, custom software and production test facility drive down the component and manufacturing costs. With a worldwide annual market of 1.5 billion new phones, there are implications for the sensor industry concerning the commoditization of what are currently deemed 'exotic' medical devices.

LMD’s V-Sensor is currently being readied for submission to the FDA, and once it has been approved, smartphone makers are expected to begin integrating it into next generation smartphones from 2018.

Millions of people die needlessly every year, especially in poorer regions, simply through lack of affordable, accurate blood pressure measurement. The approach we have taken with the design of the sensor means that the user incurs no price, power consumption or size penalty.

Effectively, they get a medically accurate, easy-to-use blood pressure monitor free with their next smartphone upgrade. For smartphone vendors, they get the biggest new selling feature since the introduction of a high resolution digital camera.
