Gili non-contact biosensor system obtains FDA De Novo Clearance

Gili no contact biometrics monitoring

Gili non-contact biosensor system received De Novo clearance this week. The contactless optical device for monitoring biometrics, made by the Israel-based company continuse-biometrics (CU-BX), holds tremendous promise in wellness monitoring in diverse settings.

CU-BX sensors are currently being marketed for vehicle manufacturers.

Designed to integrate with Tier 1 and OEMs needs, CU-BX cutting-edge technology can be integrated into existing camera-based driver monitoring software technologies. 

The current CU-BX contact-free sensor captures a vehicle driver’s heart rate, respiratory rate, and heart rate variability. It then applies patented algorithms to analyze key driver comfort, safety, and well-being attributes such as fatigue, stress, and thermal comfort.

The company’s Patented nano-vibration motion detection provides the most accurate solution to measure key vitals, stress & overall well-being indicators.Gili contactless biometrics monitoring

Gili’s non-contact biosensor system has also undergone clinical trials. A trial was launched in 2019 to study the efficacy of this novel platform that could be used in physician’s offices and other health facilities.

A comparative analysis of a Non-contact Respiratory and Heart Rate Monitor Vs. a Conventional Clinically Validated Reference Monitor was conducted as a part of the study and results were included as a part of the company’s de novo application in June of 2020.

Contactless biometrics monitoring has seen an uptrend recently. Google’s latest Nest hub can perform sleep monitoring in a contactless fashion. New research revealed earlier this year showed how researchers could use Smart speakers to track biometrics effectively.

This new technology from CU-BX will now make contactless biometric monitoring and associated applications more readily available in not only your physician’s offices but also on your next vehicle.

CU-BX CTO Prof. Zeev Zalevsky is one of the leading researchers in optoelectronics today. Ran Califa is the head of research at CU-BX and is also an acclaimed researcher in optoelectronics. Look out for new and promising developments from the CU-BX sensor team.
