First-of-its-kind consumer spectroscopy solution
30.11.2023 - New solution by Trinamix integrates NIR spectroscopy on mobile devices to help to improve user health and well-being.
Announced at Qualcomm Technologies’ annual Snapdragon Summit, the solution of Trinamix is the world’s first NIR spectrometer integrated in a smartphone reference design, covering the wavelength range from 1 – 3 µm. As a result, the solution is poised to transform personal health and well-being by making previously ‘invisible’ indicators of health visible – all through consumers’ personal mobile devices.
The presented technology provides non-invasive biomarker measurements on their skin, enabling numerous applications with the potential to revolutionize the way consumers use mobile devices. Through the proprietary spectroscopy module, smart algorithms, and a user-friendly app, the smartphone can become a hub of health insights. Trinamix Consumer Spectroscopy seamlessly integrates into mobile devices, letting users monitor selected aspects of their health independently and reliably. The comfort, ease-of-use, and safety of non-invasive monitoring could empower individuals to take control of their well-being, whether it be in skin health, nutrition, or other everyday use of biomarkers measurement.
"Trinamix Consumer Spectroscopy promises to revolutionize the way we understand and evaluate our health, nutrition, and more,” said Wilfried Hermes, Trinamix’ director consumer electronics North America and Europe. “Think of this technology as a camera that sees what is invisible to the human eye. It integrates right into your mobile device for on-the-go readings, providing an accurate measurement of biomarkers such as hydration levels and thus allowing users to track vital health indicators. This technology will serve as a foundation for the next generation of apps that will enable consumers to take charge of their well-being and make informed decisions for a healthier lifestyle.”
This technology has its first applications planned in health and nutrition and will present opportunities for innovation across a variety of additional categories and industries. “Our longstanding collaboration with Trinamix aligns strongly with our company’s commitment to delivering top-notch technology and innovative user experiences for our customers,” said Judd Heape, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “We’re thrilled to work with Trinamix to help deliver this never-before-seen innovation. The potential applications of this technology are significant, and we’re excited to be on the forefront of this new age of innovation in mobile computing.”
At the Snapdragon Summit 2023, an event for showcasing cutting-edge products and technologies, Trinamix integrated its solution into the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 reference design which was announced to a global audience.
The solution ties in with the concept of the Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) designed to enable the secure collection and processing of user’s data. The Qualcomm TEE provides enhanced protection for personal data to help prevent unauthorized access or tampering.
For the first application of this technology, Trinamix brings together its expertise in spectroscopy and chemometrics with the deep application and industry knowledge of partners like Revea – provider of high-quality skincare science and customized care products that democratize dermatology and helps to put consumers in control of their skin.
