NeuroLab Company announces that as a result of three years' work new device for monitoring of person's functional state
intended for mass consumption — 'BioMouse' — was designed and patented.
October, 2007. NeuroLab Company presented its products during «China Sourcing Fair»
in Hong-Kong. New home edition of the BioMouse device attracted attention of the visitors and participants. Over 120 visitors
tested our product in action and 10 requests for samples were made during
the four days of the exhibition.
Representatives of biggest electronic distribution companies
expressed their admiration with our product.
November, 2007. NeuroLab Company obtained patents for the new
BioMouse device in Russia as "Computer manipulator of 'mouse' type
for individual self-control of person's functional capabilities".
The new device combines functions of a computer manipulator
(computer mouse) with functions that allow monitoring state of
health. This device is protected by the following patents: in Russia (No. 64701,
priority reference No.006500069) and in People's Republic of China (No. ZL
200630130118.2). This device is now produced in series and is being
adapted for mass production.
Middle-scale series of the BioMouse device was produced by order
from MOESK Company (http://www.moesk.ru)
(series was produced in P.R.C.).
This product is the first step to ‘home doctor’ ― compact,
low-cost yet precise solution that can be used in every
household with a personal computer for express estimation of
person’s functional state. This device is modern
technological solution that allows every household to use
generally accepted methods that were developed for sport and
space medicine and pre-shift checkup of power plants
operators. These methods are based on analysis of heart
rhythm variability (HRV analysis).
Using BioMouse one can easily detect his or her own state of
functional capabilities ― an index that determines how well
organism can adapt itself to changing environmental
conditions, including working and recreation conditions,
physical activity and psychological stresses, and so on.
BioMouse consists of hardware and specialized software.
BioMouse hardware is a conventional PC mouse (see the
picture) with built-in optical pulse sensor and processing
channel. The optical sensor is conveniently located on the side
surface of the mouse's case where the user’s thumb is
usually placed. BioMouse software allows to perform primary
processing of data acquired from the sensor, represent the
data on PC screen in the form of photoplethysmogram in real
time, detect the rhythm of heart contractions and to analyze
heart rhythm variability.
