LionsGate Technologies of Vancouver, Canada has announced a new technology offering that provides the ability for all sorts of medical sensors to easily use smartphones and tablets as their interface. By using the audio jack as the cheap and universal way to transfer data, LionsGate can make their technology compatible with just about any programmable consumer device out there.
They’ve already demonstrated their Vital Signs DSP technology by building a pulse oximeter that works straight off an iPhone’s audio jack and displays readings on its screen. This technology gives companies the ability to focus on the core technology they’re working on, either during development or for actual production of a cheap medical device that doesn’t need its own display.
