Aidlab - Hyper-Accurate Wearable & Dashboard for Lifeloggers

Hello, all!

My name is Jacob, and I would love to introduce a chest strap named Aidlab, that we’ve released a couple of months ago. Hope you don’t mind if I will share some words with you about the project :slight_smile: .

Aidlab was created to fill the gap between simple fitness trackers and advanced medical devices. We wanted to make a very personal tracker (Aidlab learns the user’s behavior to give meaningful feedback), and to create something open to tinkerers (we’ve created a well-documented SDK with examples for data geeks).

Here are some strengths that we and our community see in Aidlab:

  • It learns. We’ve used some neat machine learning and basic heuristic to create a truly personal assistant. For example, Aidlab will suggest a short walk, only if he will understand you, and your daily routine.
  • It’s open for developers. On local geek meetings and Hackerspaces people are creating really neat things. Some guy created a Flappy Birds clone, where the bird was controlled by the signal from lungs (http://www.aidlab.com/market/breathing-sky).
  • It’s open for researchers. Aidlab is widely used as a learning platform (https://www.aidlab.com/research) - for those who want to learn basics of data science, IoT and mobile development.
  • Aidlab is built on the top of the high accuracy sensors. For almost 2 years, we have been testing best on the market biosensors to provide reliable readings.
  • Aidlab supports custom, internal add-ons to optimize the vital tracking process. For example, you can decide if you want to focus on sleep or fitness or health tracking only. This could give you a higher readings accuracy, as normally we are limited by Bluetooth 4.0 bandwidth.

What Aidlab tracks:

  • ECG.
  • Respiration.
  • Skin temperature.
  • Noise pollution.
  • Steps, pulse, HRV, bodyweight reps, activity, calories, sleeping behavior, and more…

Here, I am looking for an opportunity to spread the word about Aidlab, honest feedback, and some love :heart: .

Cheers!
Jacob

The SDK opens up a lot of interesting applications, but will their be a web API (or integration with Apple Health and Google Fit) as well?

@ejain Interesting that you are asking about the web API, as we’ve released a couple of hours ago our Web API in it’s Alpha stage. Link: my.aidlab.com.

Integration with Google Fit is what we are working on now - should be ready around November / December (we have integration with Apple Health only).

FYI: I forgot to mention, but Aidlab is also compatible with some smart t-shirts (like Sensoria or Kalenji).

Hello!

I would like to reach you with a piece of news that I hope you’ll find interesting.

Since the release of Aidlab Beta, we have been focusing on improving the user interface of your personal dashboard as well as enhancing our official Android and iOS app for tracking your life parameters. However, we wanted to reach to the next level by also providing a way to utilize your data in real-time from the official API.

So I am very excited to announce that we have just released our REST API to the private beta for free. We started with Europe but more regions and plans will be added shortly. All you have to do is to message me directly at jdomaszewicz (at) aidlab.com so I can generate a unique token for you.

Lastly, if you have any feedback that you could share with us then please feel free to share it here or directly to my mailbox. It does not matter if it is good or bad, I will appreciate if you could drop me a couple of lines - I will make all I can to satisfy your needs.

All the best and stay healthy,

Jakub

OK, first of all: it is really impressive that you returned here three years after posting to show how much progress you have made. Most developers of hackable wearable devices, no matter how laudable their goals, post a few times, disappear into the stress of trying to make their project work, and then throw up their hands and move on to something else. I know a lot of them, and admire them, and feel bad that this kind of work is so, so difficult to sustain. Sincere congratulations on this progress. It is rare.

Second, can you show some details of how data access/export works? I looked at the web site and understand the high level points of your approach, but I didn’t see any sample data there, or details about the API.

Gary, indeed, it requires tremendous work and a lot of tweaks to make a universal health tracker - not so many can handle obstacles when creating hardware.

Answering your question: some datasets are available here. We are also planning to give away datasets for free, collected during trials. If you’d like to be notified, then feel free to subscribe under this link.
