Smart Pajamas with Exmobaby

Exmovere Holdings a biomedical engineering company focused on government and consumer applications for healthcare, security and mobility has announced the availability of their Exmobaby smart pajamas (cozy name) to distributers and clinicians.

exobaby-chartThe pajamas provide some peace of mind to new parents (and specifically addresses SIDS worries) by remotely monitoring a babies heart rate, emotional state and general behavior through the biosensor garment itself. Powered by a AAA-battery and communicating via your PC and a Zigbee transmitter, users can setup custom SMS, email and IM alerts to be notified if the baby is showing signs of distress.

From their FAQ on the systems emotional state detection they respond with the following:

"Detection of emotion from Exmobaby involves software that compares heart rate, delta temperature and movement data (arousal) to heart rate variability and skin temperature (valence). Normally, these data, if tracked over time, enable a system to "guess" from a series of words that could be used to describe an emotional state: anger, fatigue, depression, joy, etc. For this to work, normally the subject would confirm or deny the system's assessment. Over time, this enables the software algorithms to gain greater accuracy. In the case of babies, Exmovere is asking its users to try something new: name states. Exmobaby software will monitor trends in vital states. Parents will be asked to name states, such as "giggly" or "grumpy," and the system can and will alert them when the underlying readings that match those states are detected. The idea is to demonstrate the link between changes in vital sign data and mental states. It is also to create a deeper level of communication between babies and their parents at the beginning of such a critical relationship.
