About Us

Wearable devices are becoming an everyday companion. At Sensifree, we are pioneering the landscape of contactless sensors for wearables. We work closely with manufacturers of wearables and understand real-life challenges of new wearable devices.
Our mission is to provide sensors that will make wearables comfortable, accurate and consume low power. Our sensor technology is unique and we are making it affordable for the consumer market. Our heart rate sensor is already available and we are currently developing a revolutionary, cuff-less blood pressure sensor.

The Vision

Sensifree has developed a unique, patent-pending sensor technology that solves the shortcomings of optical sensors. Our RF based sensor technology can accurately monitor heart rate from different points on the human body. Unlike current LED optical technology, Sensifree sensors are very low power, deliver robust operation, and give designers and manufacturers the ability to create new wearable products that do not compromise comfort, appearance or usability.

Sensifree partners with wearable manufacturers, fashion brands and luxury watch makers seeking next generation biometric sensors for consumer electronics devices, fitness trackers, traditional watches and smart clothing products.

Technology

Our first sensor is a heart rate sensor. Currently available heart rate sensing technologies for wearables are adaptations of technologies originally developed for medical devices. Sensors based on these technologies are uncomfortable for prolonged use and, in the case of optical sensors, consume high power.

Our disruptive technology features different type of physics altogether, allowing to sense pulse without the need to touch the skin. It is very low power and for the user it means a more comfortable device that is insensitive to skin pigmentation and can work through fabrics.

With each heartbeat a pressure wave travels through the arteries. This increase in blood pressure causes the artery wall to expand slightly.

Sensifree has developed and miniaturized RF based technology that senses these changes in the artery wall, tracking heart rate, and in the future — blood pressure.

wrist-cross-section

Our sensor can be placed at various points on the body where arteries are close to the surface, including the wrist and the chest. Main features of the technology are:

  • Consumes 10X less power than optical LED sensors.
  • Enables continuous, accurate heart rate monitoring.
  • Uniquely capable of working through fabrics and under water.
  • Robust functionality in challenging environments and is not impacted by ambient light, skin pigmentation, tattoos, hair, sweat or dirt.

Sensifree sells the SensiCor, a proprietary silicon chip that is the core of the sensor front-end and associated software libraries.

Sensifree provides a full reference design and customization services to address specific customer requirements.

The architecture is flexible, allowing designers to use different parts of it according to their needs.

Sleep Monitoring

The importance of sleep in human health is well understood. However, it is only in professional sleep labs, utilizing complex and expensive equipment, that sleep can be accurately studied and analyzed. Sensifree has developed a technique to analyze stress and sleep quality based on heart rate analysis.

Currently, activity trackers use crude sleep monitoring analysis based on body movements. The correlation of these readings to true sleep analysis is weak, and does not provide users with meaningful information about how they actually slept, let alone their overall sleep quality*.

Through a partnership with academic researchers, Sensifree has developed an integrated, Heart Rate Variability (HRV) based solution that provides significantly better sleep monitoring and bridges the gap between scientific/medical analysis of sleep and in-home tracking of sleep quality.

Fitness Trackers and Smart Watches

Short battery life is one of the top five reasons users stop using their wearable devices*. OEMs of fitness trackers, activity monitors and smart watches, can partner with Sensifree to design the next generation of devices that can be worn comfortably, offer continuous heart rate monitoring with significantly improved battery life. Sensifree’s technology offers the following benefits:

  • 10X lower power consumption while maximizing accuracy
  • Robust functionality in challenging environments, not impacted by ambient light, skin pigmentation, hair, sweat or dirt.
  • Open, extensible platform for capturing biometric data and building new software applications and services.
