ContinUse Biometrics Ltd. (CU-BX) is an Israeli startup developing remote, contact-free solutions for the identification of physiological data with medical-grade accuracy. The company was founded in 2015 following successful collaborative research and tech-transfer efforts between Bar Ilan University (Israel) and the University of Valencia (Spain). The company is actively developing care and safety applications in the medical, automotive and IoT domains and is engaged with a number of world-renowned entities.
CU-BX contact-free sensing allows for a safer, simplified and more comfortable method through which patented sensor platforms capture, monitor, track & asses physiological information. Clinically validated technology detects key physiological parameters such as heart rate, respiratory rate, respiratory rhythm, blood pressure, cardiac acoustics and more.
Patented optics and algorithms transform measured changes in surface level nano-motions (resulting from movement of internal organs such as the heart and lungs) to detect and record multiple physiological parameters with medical grade accuracy.
Measurement data is streamed to a GDPR-HIPAA compliant health cloud where machine learning models and AI techniques identify trends, alerts, anomalies and biomarkers providing insights to support actionable insights that enable better health, safety and wellbeing.
The operative nature of the device is highly compliant with personal activities of daily living and thus helps to enable consistent measurement compliance. The technology maintains accuracy within multiple unique environments / conditions, working as a standalone device or when embedded into partner technologies. CU-BX technology works in all lighting conditions, through multiple types of clothing, is unaffected by skin color or perspiration. The system can likewise operate through translucent materials (e.g. glass) as well as in a moving car.
HEALTHCARE: CU-BX health monitoring solutions enable safer and more efficient healthcare practices, such as the detection of parameters associated with different cardiac and respiratory conditions, including pneumonia like symptoms (e.g. COVID-19), supportive telemedicine practices and unnecessary hospital overloading. Because the device maintains accuracy within multiple environments, it enables an improved continuum of care. Telemedicine and remote patient monitoring are supported as healthcare practitioners are able to both remotely receive consistent patient vital sign measurements & trends as well as conduct immediate patient screening. In the midst of the global health crises inflicted by COVID-19, a fully contact-free patient screening method helps to enable safer working conditions for the patients themselves as well as for the medical staff that are on the treatment’s front line.
WELLNESS: sensors are offered as a standalone device or embedded in everyday electronics such as smart TVs, laptops, speakers, mobile phones, gaming consoles, workout devices, smart appliance as smart furniture, for comfort level indications as well as for optimizing personal wellness, occupational health and performance.
AUTOMOTIVE: CU-BX wellness and safety monitoring platforms embedded in partner Tier 1 and OEM technologies detect driver vitals (heart rate, respiratory rate, IBI) with medical grade accuracy for use in multiple environments and conditions. The system helps monitor driver and passenger safety, comfort & wellness in real-time, providing warnings to possible deleterious physiological changes
