Science Behind The Helo LX

Developing new devices require creativity and science.

HELO devices use the latest information of programming and science data analysis to offer you the best technology. The algorithms developed with Machine Learning Techniques allow the devices, combined with the apps, to better understand your body day after day. Together with these advanced techniques, HELO devices apply Artificial Intelligence to develop data analysis and algorithms with a predictive method that understands and learns from the behaviors of the users.

Artificial Intelligence will improve the Wellness Industry

Artificial intelligence has nearly infinite potential and uses. An area in which it has been, and will continue to, innovate and change our lives is healthcare.

Many prominent thinkers of our generation state we are currently in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in which new technologies are changing both the physical and digital worlds, changing much about our day to day lives and revolutionizing many industries and economies.

BECAUSE BIG DATA IS SO BIG.

We need Artificial Intelligence to help keep track of it.

Artificial Intelligence is already a part of our lives, whether we realize it or not. Between Amazon suggestions, Google searches, and inside our cars, narrow AI is already happening. Things like Microsoft’s Cortana and Apple’s Siri are services which use language processing to extract questions from speech. They can then do a limited number of useful things with this data, like looking for movie times or scheduling an appointment in a calendar.


The Life Sensing Technology on your HELO

HELO uses A.I. combined with the most advanced techniques to measure your bio-parameters, with the clear target of building a family of next-generation, fully integrated devices. With a HELO device fully compliant with Internet of Things (IoT), you will never need a smartphone or tablet to keep yourself connected and informed.

Principle of PPG

Photoplethysmography (PPG) is an optical technique used to detect volumetric changes in blood in peripheral circulation. It is a non-invasive method that makes measurements at the surface of the skin. The technique provides valuable information related to our cardiovascular system.

PPG makes uses of low-intensity infrared (IR) light. When light travels through biological tissues it is absorbed by bones, skin pigments and both venous and arterial blood. Since light is more strongly absorbed by blood than the surrounding tissues, the changes in blood flow can be detected by PPG sensors as changes in the intensity of light.

The voltage signal from PPG is proportional to the quantity of blood flowing through the blood vessels. Even small changes in blood volume can be detected using this method, though it cannot be used to quantify the amount of blood.

A PPG signal has several components including volumetric changes in arterial blood which is associated with cardiac activity, variations in venous blood volume which modulates the PPG signal, a DC component showing the tissues’ optical property and subtle energy changes in the body. The PPG technology is used for measuring oxygen saturation, blood pressure and cardiac output, assessing autonomic function and also detecting peripheral vascular disease.

How PPG works

Principle of NIR

NIR (Near-InfraRed) ia a spectroscopic method that uses the near-infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is based on overtones and combinations of bond vibrations in molecules.
In NIR spectroscopy, the unknown substance is illuminated with a broad-spectrum of near-infrared light, which can be absorbed, transmitted, reflected or scattered by the sample of interest.

The light intensity as a function of wavelength is measured before and after interacting with the sample, and the diffuse reflectance, a combination of absorbance and scattering, caused by the sample is calculated.Some of the NIR radiation is absorbed by water molecules in your skin. This raises the temperature of the water and results in an increase in temperature in the surrounding tissue which is detected by nerves in your skin.

The primary application of NIRS to the human body uses the fact that the transmission and absorption of NIR light in human body tissues contains information about hemoglobin concentration changes. Optical imaging can measure the location and activity of specific regions of the brain by continuously monitoring blood hemoglobin levels through the determination of optical absorption coefficients.

The basic principle of NIR

The Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network.

A full IoT device is a next-generation device capable of incorporate in itself all the elements needed for a communication of data, media, and position through the Internet, like a screen, WiFi connection, GPS monitoring.


More efficient in Wellness

Utilizing AI in healthcare may have the ability to give better treatment plans or understand patients more fully. This type of technology may provide all the information a physician may need to make more accurate decisions.

This isn’t some distant pipe dream either. Many in the industry believe AI will make a huge difference in the next few years.

Just some of the companies working on AI for the healthcare industry include Hitachi Data Systems, Luminoso, Alchemy API, Digital Reasoning, Highspot, Lumiata, Sentient Technologies, Dell, Next IT, Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Enterra, IPSoft, and now WOR(l)D Global Network.

 

Redesigning Wellness Through Artificial Intelligence

Although there are a few examples of AI already helping the wellness industry, they will only make huge improvements if they are available to mainstream consumers, not simply the wealthiest medical institutions or the smartest experts.

Mining records

Managing Big Data and helping streamline it and make it more understandable and usable is one area in which AI has already helped wellness. We are approaching the same with the upcoming LifeLog.

Better Suggestions

Better understanding of data may help provide better suggestions plans for users. Combining a users’s file, data, and research, AI may be able to better provide a personalized improvement plan.


Seeing the Future

Eliminating Repetition

Artificial Intelligence may be able to replace repetition in jobs by searching through images and data to find problems. In this case, specialists can focus on cases where AI shows human supervision or research may be necessary.

More Precise

AI may also be able to look at genetics and search for genetic mutations or links to diseases. Computer simulations can predict what may happen when DNA is altered, either naturally or as part of treatment.

Better Supplements

Creating supplements can take decades, and involves time-consuming research and trials. Computers can now be used to search for treatments from sequences of molecular structures. Recently, AI was used to search for an Ebola cure and found 2 options to reduce infectivity. This was done in less than a day, as opposed to the years it may have taken previously. future_01

Better Decisions for Better Wellness

When people refer to an open AI ecosystem, they are referring to the idea that with so much data now available, as well as improvements to natural speech processing and other developments, AI will become more and more useful to everyday consumers.

This is especially true in the wellness and medicine industries. With so much data like patient records and family histories combined with things like daily trackers, this data can help people make healthier and smarter decisions. It can also help those in the wellness industry help design plans based on individual patients and their needs.


Changing the System

Artificial Intelligence can help users to apply improvement to their own life and can help prevent unnecessary actions.

How Can We Make It Happen?

There is a longstanding fear that AI may become too powerful and start to dictate and run human life. Once we overcome this fear and understand the great things AI can do, then we can start to progress towards utilizing it for the benefit of mankind.

HELO and AI

The second thing to do is to bring all these results to the mass. We must avoid keeping this as a secret or a tool just for big companies. Wellness is for everyone.helo_dna_01

For this reason, WOR(l)D has created the Project HELO. We want to put AI together with the new technologies for catching big data directly from people through a “democratic” device, developed thanks to an open protocol, where users, members, and developers can truly participate towards a shared wellbeing which will bring about a new era for medicine and wellness. This is the reason why people will join our movement.
