Google, Biogen will use wearable sensors to study multiple sclerosis

Google, Biogen will use wearable sensors to study multiple sclerosis | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Biogen Idec has partnered with Google X, Google’s business unit for long-term “moonshot” projects, to study outside factors that might contribute to the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a report from Bloomberg.

Google and Biogen will use sensors, software, and data analysis tools to collect and analyze data from people who have MS. The companies aim to explore why MS progresses differently in each patient.

Bloomberg pointed out that Biogen has used digital tools for its disease research in the past. Last month, Biogen announced that it was using Fitbit activity trackers to gather data from people who have MS. It gave 250 Fitbit bands to participants to track their level of activity and sleep patterns. Last summer, the pharma company worked with Cleveland Clinic to develop an iPad app to assess MS progression.

"Embrace", the wearable version of Empatica's wristbands.

The first wearable to help measure stress, epileptic seizures, activity, and sleep. The Embrace is designed to be a gorgeous watch and a medical quality devi...
Olivier Janin's insight:

Empatica released its Indiegogo campaign a few days ago and they already fulfill their $100K objective. The Milan-Boston based company intend to launch Embrace a mass-market wristband on July 2015.


The value proposal of the Embrace is to offer a tracker that can measure your stressyour activity and your sleep.

It also promises to help people detect epileptic seizures to take the appropriate disposition.

In my opinion, this double positioning is interesting but there is a risk to blur the key value to the mass-market. I also think that not embedding HR makes the product less compelling for Medical fields.


The SRP is set at $199. For that price, you will get your Embrace Wristband + 2 apps (Empatica Alert, Empatica Mate). The Embrace embeds sensors that track Electrodermal Activity (EDA)  which calculates emotions arousal.. 

Accelerometer and Gyroscope to track Activities and Sleep.

No Heart-Rate sensor on Embrace. 

It allowed the Industrial Design to be less constrained by the locking system. The form is a easy slap made off leather. The clock IHM is made of a led pattern on the face of the Watch. Not obvious for the user, a type of mental friction I would avoid. 

The Embrace is coming with 2 sizes and a set of 5 colors.


I personally use the Empatica E3 wristband to collect datas for my explorations on emotions and affective computing. The HW is very reliable and the datas collection very accurate and in term of Timeframe.


Empatica partnered at MIT Medialab with Rosalind Picard's Affective Computing lab and with Orrin Devinsky, Director at NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.

Apple struggled to find purpose for Apple Watch after many planned health features were cut

Apple struggled to find purpose for Apple Watch after many planned health features were cut | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
The Wall Street Journal revealed tonight that many of the planned health features that Apple intended to include in its first-generation wearable were cut from the final product. Early reports on t...
Olivier Janin's insight:

Off course the Apple Watch may still offer a disruptive approach on the Smartwatch innovative segment (we hope so), also embedding Activity tracking features thanks to the Accelerometer and the dedicated App on the iOS Ecosystem.

But the lack of HR sensing tech (it seems that Apple went from PPG tech to bio-impedance solution), GSR feature, Temperature measurement, makes the value proposal under my expectations.  

If these are not essential to the MVP ? I'm not sure. But being an iconic Apple product, there are great chances that Apple succeed to sell its 5 Millions units to the brand raving fans. 

For me, I am not sure to engage from this first version.

Heart health, advanced sleep and workout recognition. Welcome to the future of you. How far will you go?
Olivier Janin's insight:

The new UP3 from Jawbone is the high-end new iteration of the brand. Key new features include : 


  • refined design
  • Heart-rate sensing through bio-impedance technology (breakthrough on the market)
  • Activity automatic detection (Jawbone filled the gap with Basis on this topic)


Jawbone decidedly not positionned its new products on the SmartWatch race. This could at the end be a good scenario.
