Ultrahuman, a wearable tech developer, has made its foray into the smart home market with a new device to help individuals track and enhance the health of their living spaces.
The device, Ultrahuman Home, was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas this week.
The Ultrahuman Home is designed to monitor external conditions in the home that may be impacting residents, including exposure to artificial light, air quality, humidity and noise levels.
Data obtained is then correlated with an individual’s lifestyle, including their sleep and stress levels, in what the company said is a first for the smart home space.
Users are then offered recommendations to optimize their health within the home.
“Regular home health monitors measure many markers like humidity, temperature, etc but don’t provide a longitudinal view of how these markers change over time,” according to a company statement. “This is especially important when interpreted in the context of their impact on health,
“This view and correlation with a user’s health markers is the first time ever in the health tracking space and has the potential to change the lives of millions of people who could benefit by making these changes to their living environments.”
The device also identifies disturbances during sleep, including sleep apnoea and snoring, as well as blue light exposure. It even comes with a smoke sensor to protect against potential fire hazards and respiratory issues.
Ultrahuman Home is slated to reach commercialization by the end of this year.
"Ultrahuman Home marks a pioneering move in the health wearable space,” said Mohit Kumar, Ultrahuman’s CEO. “Using the unique markers from the Home device, we’d be able to link an individual’s health markers ( sleep, stress ) to their environment (temperature, humidity and light exposure).
“This on-body and off-body health tracking integration is the first time ever in the health monitoring space."
