upBeat® on its first 10K run: Continuous monitoring during Hyderabad's 10K run on Nov 25, 2018


On Sun, Nov 25, 2018, Monitra's upBeat® went on its first run during the Hyderabad 10K run. We are thankful to a 51 year gentleman who graciously volunteered to wear our upBeat® continuous 24x7 monitoring biosensor to understand its first performance in a 10K run. upBeat® was put on the gentleman at about 4.30 am and removed around 10 am. Since it is uncomfortable to carry the phone during the run, the phone which syncs the bio-physiological data in real-time was kept in the gentleman's car. upBeat® stored all the data in memory and synced immediately when it came in the phone's range.

Monitra's upBeat® Biosensors

upBeat® is a wearable medical grade biosensing skin patch that continuously 24x7 captures electrocardiogram (ECG) and tracks posture as well as activities in real-time. This physiological data is transmitted continuously to the phone and the information is relayed to our cloud platform, upBeat®.AI.

Activity levels sensing

The 3-axis accelerometer in upBeat® is used to understand the activity levels of the user. The figure below illustrates the activity levels across time. It is clearly seen that the activity levels rise sharply when the run starts at 6.28 am and fall sharply when the run ends at 7.31 am.
