Leveraging technology from its recent acquisition of Sound United, Masimo announced this week the expansion of the HEOS wireless multiroom audio platform to provide a robust and always-on connection to the Masimo Health secure cloud. This feature adds the ability to aggregate, record, and display health data from wearable Masimo continuous and spot-check health and wellness devices.
Utilizing the HEOS ecosystem, the Masimo Health secure cloud solution will seamlessly be made available to the users of over 4 million HEOS-enabled premium devices from brands such as Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology.
The HEOS expansion will provide users access to secure, continuous health data from the comfort of home, and facilitate their ability to share data with clinicians and loved ones, according to Masimo.
“Today represents a major milestone in the integration of our iconic, premium audio brands and our revolutionary healthcare products designed to save and improve lives,” says Joe Kiani, founder and CEO of Masimo. “Leveraging Masimo’s clinically proven monitoring technologies, alongside the state-of-the-art engineering and reach of the HEOS technology platform, Masimo plans to transform existing healthcare, safety, and entertainment paradigms to improve life in the hospital and in the home.”
Masimo says its latest solution will initially be made available via software upgrade in over 20,000 HEOS Denon Home devices and Masimo Home Health Hubs in the U.S. An additional 4 million devices around the world are planned for activation in 2023.
Masimo W1 Tracking Watch & Many More Devices to Make Use of HEOS
Making good on potential cross-use of technologies from Sound United, Masimo is bolstering its health and wellness capabilities. The company is bringing together synergies in health, cloud-based IoT, and entertainment technologies to create a rich ecosystem designed to revolutionize how we connect and interact with health technologies, including the availability of Masimo’s latest wearable monitoring devices.
“We’re excited about this transaction and see significant potential in combining our expertise in consumer electronics and audio engineering with Masimo’s strengths in healthcare and monitoring,” Kevin Duffy, CEO of Sound United, said back in February before the transaction closed.
The Masimo W1 advanced health tracking watch, Masimo SafetyNet patient management solution with Radius PPG and Radius Tº sensors, and many more devices, will not only wirelessly relay data to the HEOS and Masimo Health cloud for storage, analysis, reporting, and transfer, but make this data available via in-home displays and apps, alongside customizable notifications and reminders, the company explains.
To ensure that health data remains safe, secure, and reliably available, Masimo says its HIPAA-compliant ecosystem provides safeguards such as redundancy in communication with the cloud. As users move throughout the home, and even beyond it, key health data, including oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration rate, hydration, and temperature, are available continuously, allowing users to track their health and wellness. The platform will also support the hosting of telehealth sessions from home, with data transfer to clinicians streamlined to assist them in providing the comprehensive remote care, the company adds.
