LAUSANNE, Switzerland – A smartphone-integrated health sensor and app developed by Leman Micro Devices (LMD) is ready for submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other regulators worldwide. “The world is ready for smartphones that come with a build-in medically-accurate health monitoring system, rather than current products which are not approved and often inaccurate,” said Mark-Eric Jones, LMD CEO, in a statement. Using the Riva-Rocci technique to measure blood pressure, the gaming app tells the user how hard to push their finger against a sensor built in to the smartphone. Other features give body temperature, blood oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiration rate in under 60 seconds. The app is factory loaded in the smartphone and ready to use out of the box at no cost to the user, and no calibration is needed. “Our product is proven in the lab and already the FDA has ruled that it is our device—not the smartphone itself—which is the regulated element,” Jones said. The company expects to submit the Health & Sensor App for approval and certification later this year.
