It’s yet another feather in the cap of IIT Madras! Prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras has created a history by developing the algorithm for the country’s first medical-grade, wearable device with algorithms for deriving vitals in a non-invasive manner. This device is called VinCense, and it is loaded with algorithms to derive vitals non-invasively and unobtrusive monitoring for effective healthcare delivery.

What is Vin Cense?

VinCense has been developed jointly with MedIoTek Health Systems which works on mobile health technology.

The device was developed by a team led by Prof M. Manivannan, Head of Touch Lab, Biomedical Engineering Group, Department of Applied Mechanics, IIT Madras.

It can be used for unobtrusive monitoring. Vital signs including pulse-rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, skin temperature, blood pressure and others are duly recorded through this device. The real-time data are stored in the patent-pending secured cloud from where healthcare providers can access vitals using an intuitive interface. VinCense can be deployed for Home Healthcare delivery, Insurance/Analytics and Corporate/ Industrial Occupational Health Screening. It also has applications for Non-Communicable Diseases Screening and Surveillance, general Public health, and Community Health.

Speaking about VinCense, Prof M.Manivannan said that his team is developing algorithms that provide more accurate vitals from the wearable device.

Sharmila Devadoss, Managing Director of MedIoTek Health Systems, said, “We are extremely excited about our collaboration with IITM to translate crucial research into products that will impact community health and wellness in a transformational way.”
