Elaborating on the Technology behind Muse Cue, Mr. Sai Prasanth, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, said, “By observing COVID-19 positive patients, we found that the resting heart rate, heart rate variability and respiratory rate act as key indicators of the infection. About 20 per cent of COVID-19 cases can be detected before the symptoms appear. Muse Cue Smart Band can detect in advance of one to three days before the onset of COVID-19 symptoms, like high body temperature or low Oxygen levels, and notifies the user.”
Further, Mr. Sai Prasanth said, “Based on the vitals of the user, the Muse App triggers the alert to take a ‘cough analysis’ and within 30 seconds, it predicts the health risk. Continuous tracking also helps monitor the progression of COVID-19 from the pre-symptom stage, through symptom stage until the recovery stage.”
Muse Wearables Startup was founded by Mr. K.L.N Sai Prasanth and Mr. Yathindra Ajay K.A, graduates of IIT Madras, and Ms. K. Prathyusha, an NIT Warangal Graduate.
Speaking about the International Markets that the startup would be targeting, Ms. K. Prathyusha, Chief Operating Officer, and Co-Founder, said, “Our aim is to create products of world-class quality and relevance. Our flagship products MUSE Grandeur and MUSE Minimo has got tremendous response from the US and Europe markets. With Muse Cue, we would like to give our US and Europe consumers more reasons to celebrate Muse.”
Muse Cue has two main key functionalities. Continuous monitoring of the body vitals whether the user is awake or asleep, and then it concludes on the Baseline values of their body. The AI system in Muse Tracker learns from these baseline values to gain an understanding of the body patterns and provides concrete alerts during discrepancies.
Trackers usually measure vitals based on various electrical impulses, requiring the users to stay still for highly accurate measurements, which help reduce the noise in the signals captured. The Muse tracker is context-aware and can judge the best moment to start measuring body vitals. The motion compensator will factor in the slightest of movements that might normally affect readings. Once the measurements are taken, Muse Cue sends all of the data onto the Muse Health App.
