VinCense is a pioneering Wireless Health Monitoring System (WHMS). It maintains a close watch over the vital parameters of patients, persons suffering from chronic disease sufferers and senior citizens. Each patient gets to wear a device on his or her wrist, like a watch. This wearable device transmits data to an online system using an Android mobile device of the patient, such as a smartphone or tablet.
VinCense uses sophisticated electronics and communication technology. Temperature, heart rate and SpO2 levels are measured very accurately and relayed through a mobile device to a database maintained in the cloud. VinCense raises alerts immediately when the value of any of these parameters crosses user-defined limits. VinCense also maintains a record of the parameters. This record may be studied using a user-centric Web interface.
VinCense uses SSL, the standard security technology, to establish an encrypted link between the mobile device and a server. The data remain private. VinCense also uses an application-level firewall. Thus data are provided only when requests are deemed ‘clean’.
The VinCense wearable is water resistant. It has been designed for compliance with the IP 42 rating, and certification is being applied for. This rating indicates that a certified device is protected against splashing water from any direction.
