Report from QS europe 2013

  1. 1. (Not) All Quiet on the Eastern Front Luca Foschini A report from QS Europe Friday, September 13, 13
  2. 2. “A professional poker player, a researcher in financial mathematics, a biotechnologist, and this guy walk into a bar...” (in Amsterdam) Friday, September 13, 13
  3. 3. What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn? Friday, September 13, 13
  4. 4. Check (my level) This upcoming measurement system scores how ready to exercise you are. It’s a combined finger and wrist measurement that uses low-level TENS to stimulate muscle contractions and measure response characteristics. Arterial stiffness -Arterial stiffness is an under-appreciated and under-measured independent risk factor for heart disease. If your arteries become stiff then they lose some of their ability to dilate.When the heart contracts, blood will flow more rapidly through them, which can damage the endothelial lining over time. Rapid response Strept-A Test Kit – A large percentage of doctor visits could be avoided by using this at-home strep diagnostic test. Piddle – An iPhone app that works in conjunction with urinalysis test strips to help you accurately extract health info. Ucheck – Another urinalysis assistant for the iPhone. Tinke – A device for the iPhone that measures heart rate, heart rate variability, blood oxygenation, and respiratory rate, when you touch and hold your thumb to it. Adapted from: BiohackYourself [Winslow Strong] Friday, September 13, 13
  5. 5. ToucHb – An upcoming stand-alone device to help detect anemia. Beddit – An on-the-bed sleep tracking device that purports to be so sensitive that it can capture individual heartbeats through the vibrations on your mattress, and separate these out from your breaths. emWave2 and InnerBalance for heart rate variability biofeedback (audio and/or visual). Alivecor – A clinically accurate ECG monitor for use with an iPhone. Scout (by Scanadu) – A sensor that when held up to the forehead will measure temperature and apparently some other vitals also. Netra smartphone eye test – Diagnose the most common refractive eye disorders with your smart phone: myopia (nearsightedness), hypermetropia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia (age- related visual impairment). Muse – This is the first consumer EEG that I will try.You can order now, but shipments won’t occur until the end of the year. Friday, September 13, 13
  6. 6. TrueSense wearable bio-sensor kit. It is “the first affordable, ultra-compact, ultra- low-power, bio-signal acquisition kit that allows bio-signal capturing anywhere, any time and on multiple body locations.” Costs $46 and it’s OpenSource! • It can track: brainwaves, heart-rate (and deduce breath-rate from that), muscle tension, movement, posture and electro smog. • Both real-time (using wifi) or as a logger (it can store at least 11 hours). • You get the full spectrum of waves. It is raw data, not ‘cleaned’. So you yourself can separate muscle movement from brainwaves for example. • You can use several of them on different places on your body. Adapted from:Tools for Awareness Friday, September 13, 13
  7. 7. • Lumoback wearable posture sensor and mobile app to support your back health • Poikos to make a 3D image of your body with your smartphone • LifeSlice for capturing webcam images of your face and screenshots. • Empatica for real-time stress measurement in teams. • Memoto, a life logging device which was discussed in a broad discussion.
