On exhibit will be the Vancive Medical Technologies Metria Informed Health technology platform, a portfolio of products for physiological monitoring for a variety of health, wellness and clinical applications. The Metria technology platform is based on Vancive Medical Technologies’ advanced adhesives, materials and manufacturing, and includes technologies from Proteus Digital Health and BodyMedia, Inc.

According to Deepak Prakash, global director of marketing, Vancive Medical Technologies, several new Metria developments are on tap for 2013.

“We and our partner BodyMedia look forward to our first commercial launch of Metria technology, which will target weight management and wellness applications in the U.S.,” says Prakash. “We are also developing the next generation of Metria products for lifestyle management and clinical applications.

“Another exciting application we are exploring is gaming,” Prakash continues. “We have partnered with the health gaming company Ayogo on a game that encourages kids to exercise more. The interest level for the Metria platform is high in the U.S. and abroad, and addresses a variety of markets, including the military. We expect to announce these advancements in healthcare sensor technology in 2013.”

Metria will be featured on Bang Goes the Theory, BBC1, April 8 at 19:30.
