Digital health feedback system, powered by the user

"At Proteus, we've used Stratos to augment our development team as our products have matured and our company has grown.  For our next-generation personal monitor, we gave Stratos the critical role of designing, developing and testing the firmware. The engineers they put on the project were top-notch, and they delivered an excellent package, consistent with their budget and schedule estimates and compliant with the medical device regulations."

Vice President of Product Systems, Proteus Digital Health

Proteus Digital Health, Inc. is developing and commercializing digital health feedback technology used to create wearable and ingestible products that fall into three categories: Digital Medicines, Caregiver Solutions and Lifestyle Tools. The ingestible sensor, integrated into an inert pill or other ingested products such as pharmaceuticals, works together with the wearable sensor, a patch worn on the customer’s skin. Drawing from metrics such as medication adherence, heart rate, body position and activity, the system provides an unprecedented view into an individual’s personal health choices and physiologic response, allowing patients to better manage their health and more effectively collaborate with caregivers and clinicians, while enabling new information-based business models.

Stratos worked with Proteus on end-to-end firmware development for multiple generations of the product line, allowing Proteus to meet aggressive schedules and achieve cross-market deployment worldwide. In addition to embedded systems development, Stratos worked with Proteus in early generations of the product on industrial design, human factors support, miniaturization and wearable adhesives. These initial efforts led to a more advanced iteration of the product that involved Android development and integration, Bluetooth communications and an innovative software architecture that partitions the ISO 13485-compliant design-controlled software from the user-facing application, allowing cost-effective iteration of the application and user interface without sacrificing quality or reliability.
