100Plus has developed a platform of devices and services to help physicians monitor the health and activity of their patients between visits and intervene with life-saving support when needed. The stylish iBeat emergency watch tracks and transmits heart rate and movement data to alert physicians or Emergency Medical Services in the case of a fall or critical heart rhythm changes. Patients can also initiate calls to EMS or a contact of their choice through the watch’s easily activated button and touchscreen interface.
Alloy was responsible for the complete mechanical and electrical development from early concept through overseas pre-production support. Having ME and EE under one roof was critical for optimizing the size and performance of the wearable, ultimately leading to a successful launch. Key aspects of the program included a custom heart rate sensor design, power optimization for battery life, 4G LTE connectivity, GPS tracking, custom flexible antennas molded into the watch bands, and a custom OLED touch display module, all packaged in a durable, water-resistant enclosure.
