Intrinsyc works with Knit Health on advanced sleep-monitoring system

Oct. 27, 2016

Vancouver, BC. Intrinsyc Technologies, a provider of solutions for the development of embedded and Internet of Things products, today announced a development and supply agreement with IoT health provider Knit Health Inc.

Knit Health’s sleep monitor incorporates Intrinsyc’s Open-Q 410 System on Module, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. The Open-Q 410 is a miniature and cost-effective embedded-computing platform that supports the rapid commercial production of intelligent connected products across a variety of embedded-computing and IoT industries. Products such as robotics, cameras, wearables, health devices, vending machines, and building and home-automation and industrial-control equipment are just some of the examples that benefit from this platform.

Redefining the categories of baby monitors and sleep trackers, Knit Health has produced one of the most technologically advanced sleep monitoring systems. Until now, the world of baby monitors has focused on video/audio streams, and sleep tracking has focused on wearables. The Knit Health system consists of an easy-to-mount HD camera and a deep learning system that analyses a child’s pose, breathing, and sleep throughout the night without wearables. And while the Knit camera is initially being marketed to parents of young children, the camera works on babies and adults alike. The Knit Health system is currently sold through Kickstarter.

“We are proud to be involved to help bring the Knit Health monitor to market as it is both an innovative product and one that provides an important service in monitoring and improving the well-being of our children,” stated Mark Waldenberg, vice president, global sales, Intrinsyc.

“Intrinsyc has been an outstanding partner in helping us to accelerate our product development and commercial launch,” said David Janssens, CEO and cofounder of Knit Health. “The Open-Q 410 provides a cost-effective and powerful computing platform with advanced video capabilities that enable Knit Health to provide more features than any other product on the market, at a lower price point.”
