Your body is talking to you
Samsung Simband is not a product. It’s a reference design. It’s our concept of what a smart health device should be. Devices based on the Simband platform will be able to gather vital diagnostic information - from your heart rate to your skin’s electrical conductivity, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Now, for the first time you will be able to ask specific wellness questions and get clear, insightful answers direct from the source: you. Simband is being designed to power you on your way to better health and a richer more fulfilling life.
What if your body had a voice - a voice that spoke to you in a language you understood?
Simband is a way to listen to your entire body, interpret what it's telling you and act on that intelligence.
To build the world's most advanced wrist-based sensor module, we've taken a fresh look at sensing technologies and developed ways to make them more accurate, more robust and more valuable.
We're Opening the Ecosystem
Samsung Architecture Multimodal Interactions (S.A.M.I.) will be a data broker that will enable wearable devices like those based on Simband to upload information to the cloud. From there, developers can access the data and leverage it to create entirely new applications. S.A.M.I. will be the first truly secure, open, diverse data platform of its kind. Its open APIs enable it to collect data from any type of device or online source and deliver it to any other device or application in real time. These APIs are simple, which allows sensor developers to record data in the way they want.
The open nature of S.A.M.I. will allow visualization of data in a user’s different contexts: calendar, location, behavior, environment and more. Basic rule engines, machine learning and algorithms in S.A.M.I. help process the data and perform analysis. And once in S.A.M.I., the data is available to partners who want to create approved apps and services.
Together for Health
- Samsung Electronics has joined with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), one of the world’s premier academic medical centers, to create the Digital Health Innovation Lab. This is a vibrant new accelerator space at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus in San Francisco. Here, some of the world’s leading researchers and technologists will be able to develop and run trials to validate exciting new smart health technologies
- Samsung’s Simband platform is an open reference design for sensor modules. The first module of its kind has been developed in partnership with imec, a world leading bio-sensing research institute.
