Homework

Secrets of your sweat, the mysteries of your muscles and blood bear on your future health, all unlocked by the steady hands of technology.

That’s the lofty goal of the men and women working out at this lab.

It’s a very exciting time for us. We’re embracing ourselves to see how it will be. It will be adopted.

This is it, the life Q device. By touching a persons’ skin, developer set users optical sensors to collect the person’s real-time physical data like heart beat and oxygen levels. Then goes a step further based on mathematical models created in this room. It created a digital simulation of what’s happening in your body a virtual recreation that can then be sent to your phone or computer.

What this technology opens up is the ability to infer values for your physiology that cannot be measured directly. So things like, for example, what is your calorie consumption rate, can’t be measured directly, but by following your vital signs and using models, one can actually calculate these living values.

The minds that help Q Technologies call it biomathematics, developed in a setting so casual that dogs play at front desk. It has the look of silicon-valley startups, but this lab and most of the people working in it are in Stellenbosch outside Cape Town, South Africa.

I think what they are doing competes globally with any other innovative tech startups. I think it would be quite a major global player in the latest science and tech realm, and who knows, it could be IPO before we know.

There are now independent studies to back up their findings. Health Q Technologies has featured in this TomTom GPS fitness watch. The company says there is a good chance it will be in other wearable technology. But Doctor Riaan Conradre sees many more applications. Long-term he believes the technology and its 24/7 health monitoring will help more than just those who want to track their fitness.

If you think about this, you can get, instead of an episode view of user's wave once a year, for instance, since you go to your physician, you can get continuous stream of relevant information.

That can help doctors notice trends or other health concerns much more quickly and possibly one day the technology created here can help save lives.
