EMFIT (EU) – Sleep Innovations

THE STORY OF EMFIT

Dear Customer,

EMFIT (electromechanical film technology) is a world pioneer in the renaissance of ballistocardiography and a leading manufacturer of sleep sensing devices that apply this technology. The story of EMFIT began in 1990, and the first scientific publication of our manufactured sensors dates back to 1993. Since then, there have been over 100 research publications on our film and sensor technology. We are proud to collaborate with a number of world-famous universities and research organizations, focusing not only on ballistocardiography but also on other types of sensing of vibrations and forces, including acoustics and ultrasound.

Our company is made up of a small but extremely motivated team of 20 highly talented individuals with diverse backgrounds. We all share a passion for what we do. Initially, we focused on research, and in 1996 began to develop and market our systems for senior care. In 2001, a father of a child with epilepsy approached us with an idea of how we could develop and manufacture Tonic-Clonic seizure monitors using our technology. Today, 30 years later, the EMFIT MM seizure monitor is one of our top-selling products, still in high demand and widely used throughout the world.

We have been working on bio-signal sensing since the beginning. In 2004, we introduced the first generation vital signs monitor, which has since evolved into today’s 4th generation EMFIT QS. EMFIT QS, our IoT sleep sensing solution, is the most comprehensive on the market. It provides contact-free measuring of not only heart and breathing rates, sleep classes (REM, deep, light and awake) and movement activity, but most importantly whole night heart rate variability (HRV) and autonomic nervous system balance (ANS). Today, EMFIT QS users are a wide variety of people, including an increasing number of recreational and especially professional athletes and people with active-lifestyles and interest in sleep and recovery.

Our proprietary sensor technology enables durable and discreet sensor placement even under a very thick mattress. The whole solution is based on accurate, real-time embedded signal acquisition, WiFi or cellular data transmission, and cloud software solution. Therefore it ensures autonomous and automatic operation. Freedom from using a mobile phone to run an application and to provide data processing has been one of our IoT solution’s key values since 2013.

We have a large and rapidly increasing base of private users who are interested in sleep and recovery. We also have a growing number of businesses, universities and research organizations becoming EMFIT users. For them, the key value is through our API provided raw calculated data and band-pass-filtered ballistocardiography signal at a high sampling rate. Today, there are hundreds of small and large corporations (some of whom are Fortune 500) and world-famous research organizations using our EMFIT QS and API solutions.

If sleep sensing is of interest to you, we have an exceptional solution for you!
