Vivoo brings urine tests home with a strip and a phone @ CES 2022

Vivoo at-home urine testsIf you’re like most people, you probably don’t enjoy going to the doctor’s office for a urine test. But what if there was a way to take those tests at home, in just two minutes, and get personalized insights and recommendations based on your results? Vivoo is your personal solution to this problem and more with its at-home test strips and mobile phone-based analysis platform.

What is Vivoo?

Vivoo is the world’s first at-home health tracker that uses urine to provide personalized insights and recommendations. You simply use the test strip and your mobile phone to take the test and receive your results instantly. The platform also monitors your hydration, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin C, salt intake, urine pH, ketones, and kidney function.

The platform was created with two goals in mind: to help people become more aware of their health and to make it easier for them to take actionable steps towards improving their health. It does this by providing personalized insights and recommendations based on your urine test results.

How Vivoo works

Vivoo is simple and easy to use. Just use a test strip and your mobile phone to take the test. Within two minutes, you will receive your results along with personalized insights and recommendations. The system makes it easy for you to monitor your health and make changes that can improve your overall well-being.

The test strips (of which there have been two generations) are designed with a series of individual tests on a single strip. Each one is a distinct color that changes colors under certain circumstances. Once you take a photo of the strip, the app is able to analyze the color to determine one of many health and wellness statistics.

The team announced Vivoo Generation Two test strips at the show. Vivoo Generation Two test strips offer a more accurate and precise way to monitor your health. The new and improved Vivoo app also includes a revamped user interface and new features, such as the ability to track your progress over time, set goals, and receive personalized tips and advice.

There are many reasons why Vivoo is the best at-home health tracker on the market. The system was created with the help of leading experts in nutrition, fitness, and technology. Their urine test is based on the latest medical research and provides you with personalized insights and recommendations that are tailored to your specific needs. Vivoo also has a team of experts who are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about your health.

How Vivoo can help you

Vivoo can help you improve your overall health in many ways. The urine test can help you assess your hydration levels, magnesium and Vitamin C levels, uric acid levels, and more. The personalized insights and recommendations will help you make positive changes to your diet and lifestyle that can improve your health. The company is also an excellent resource for people who are managing chronic conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

BioflightVR makes world-class medical training accessible @ CES 2021

BioflightVR medical trainingPauly Suchy is the Business Director at BioflightVR, a health care education company that uses Virtual Reality (VR) to train doctors, nurses and students. He joined us at CES 2021 to talk about the company’s training platform and their vision for the future.

VR training and simulation environments can save money and time, reducing training time for medical professionals by 40% from traditional training methods. When they employ high definition immersive environments like BioflightVR’s , they can also impart a heightened sense of excitement and urgency, just as a real world experience would, providing for more realistic training.

Launched by a grant from Facebook five years ago, BioflightVR’s first project was a pediatric resuscitation program developed in partnership with Oculus, Facebook and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Another program involved the creation of hybrid surgical training procedure with Duke University, utilizing a high definition 360 view of a recorded surgery. Bioflight VRs process is unique both for the gamification aspects of their training programs and the realistic immediacy created through real world recorded scenarios, developed in partnership with medical experts.

BioflightVR works with the medical community in three basic ways: enhancing existing training curriculum and helping develop new training procedures, creating immersive labs across a variety of VR platforms that include Oculus, HTC Vive, Oculus Go, and WebVR among others; and providing full VR and 360° video production services.

The end goal, said Suchy, is a cloud based platform where a user can take an Oculus , download an application and get access to a world class education from doctors around the world , in real time, from their operating rooms. Ultimately, BioflightVR believes the tool can decentralize and democratize access to what can often be unattainable training and resources for remote or underserved facilities and the medical professionals who serve them, bringing better health care to all.

Vuzix M100 Smart Glass vs. Google Glass

Vuzix-M100Of course, I wear Google Glass. Vuzix has their own wearable technology in the Vuzix M100 Smart Glass. Therefore, I had to see what their glass was all about.

Geared toward industrial or commercial use, the M100 can snap onto a pair of safety goggles so you can use them and stay protected. The M100 is an Android based wearable that can track events, scan product, take pictures and video, manage calendars, and much more.

Although I said the M100 works well for industrial, healthcare, retail and other use, it can also be used as a personal device, just like Glass is. Tether it to your phone to talk back and forth or just sync with Wifi.

Streaming Live 3D video

PairasightThis is a developers dream project, from a new company called Pairasight. It has been over two years in development – with a prototype that has been fabricated on a 3D printer.  The capture device links to a smartphone which then transmits the signal to a website where it is displayed, and is viewable in 3D. The full 1080p video streams are both at 30 frames per second, from separate left and right 5 megapixel cameras, and include audio as well. The on-board processer CPU has less than 5% loading, and the developers anticipate that onboard realtime image processing will be in the next version of the device. With 600 mAh hour battery, it gives about 90 minutes of streaming – or about six hours without continuous streaming. Developers can have early access to the modules used in the device at SomThings.com, with single unit pricing of $200.

The initial applications for the device will be for EMT responses and repair or do-it-yourself advice with the realtime expert being connected on a wireless link. The developer’s hope that with early adoption efforts, it will become another tool for getting the right knowledge and skillset on site and on target.
