Allahabad native developing smartwatch claims to be 95% diagnosis accuracy – ET HealthWorld

By Abhijeet Singh

New Delhi: Pankaj Kumar a former MTech (Biomedical engineering) student from the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad (IIIT-A), is developing a smartwatch that will help in measuring pulse rate, blood pressure, temperature, etc. with an accurfacy of more than 95 per cent.

The device is a remote health monitoring device that will measure biological parameters and provide alerts during emergencies. The results will be illuminated on the LED screen or can be monitored by mobile-based applications that provide data in real-time.

The accuracy claim from the innovator has been based on convenience sampling, but the device has neither been medically certified nor scientifically proven. The device has been in development since 2018 and the estimated date of completion is 2025.

“Most of the existing technologies do not provide accurate information as they work on algorithms, on the other hand, this device uses multiple sensors that will provide accurate diagnosis, which can pave the way towards fast and accurate treatment of patients,” said Kumar.

He added, “I am trying to develop a wearable medical device that can be able to track basic health parameters of the patient, like heart rate and its variability, body temperature and its variability, pulse rate and its variability, patient’s location, SMS alert, etc. Later on, other essential parameters will be added as features of the device during the journey of its development. The device will be able to share the health data with the patient’s registered doctor and their family continuously.”

“Currently, the device is in the prototype stage, and we are working to improve its features and accuracy. Once the features and accuracy will be tested and the results meet a satisfactory level of accuracy, we will move on to commercial production,” he informed.
