Wearable Biomonitors for superior sports training and medicine

Technology Review - David Icke, CEO of MC10, wants you to feel like an Olympian. The company wants to provide users with sophisticated knowledge to fuel individual fitness and improve health, all through wearable electronics.

The biggest opportunity offered by wearable electronics, he claims, is to unlock the mysteries of human biology so that we understand what makes us sick, and what expands our capacities. “Imagine what we don’t know today that we will learn from a closer look at our systems, which is possible when sensing and computing electronics conform to us,” he says.

MC10 has formed a Sports Advisory Board (SAB) to shape the next generation of athletic performance monitoring devices.



MC10 technology uses conventional, high performance (over GHz) semiconductors in conjunction with a proprietary interconnect and packaging technology to produce high yield, low cost, conformal electronics. All of our materials and processes are compatible with industry standard CMOS production facilities.
