Omron is the worldwide leader in selling home blood pressure monitors for consumers to use by themselves, Omron Project Zero Upper Arm is a blood pressure monitor where everything is integrated, you put it on your arm, press start and in about 30 seconds it measures your blood pressure and synchronizes it to your smartphone or tablet. Then Omron releases their Omron Bloor Pressure Smartwatch with steps, calories burnt, distance and sleep monitoring, it can measure the blood pressure through the radial artery in the wrist, it inflates a little bit to measure the blood pressure on the wrist also within about 30 seconds by just pushing a button, making it easy to take ones blood pressure directly on the wrist! The price is going to be below $200 for release in 2016.
UICO duraTOUCH makes it possible to use Smartwatches and Phones in any weather, with sweaty fingers, under the rain, snow, even while wearing gloves in the winter. As people come to depend on wearable devices and use them everywhere, users want touchscreens to work under any weather condition everywhere and anytime. UICO’s duraTOUCH projected capacitive (PCAP) touch controllers enable touch sensing to work in any environment, with rain, sweat, and using gloves also. duraTOUCH out-performs traditional PCAP that is in devices like Moto360 and Samsung Gear Live. It is ideal for wearable and IoT devices with super-low power requirements like 1X charge per week with wake on touch. duraTOUCH products include duraTOUCH controllers, touchscreens, and duraTOUCH Surface, a bendable wrap-able touch sensing surface. Look for this technology in the next generation of consumer electronics and wearable devices, you will now have technology that UICO previously shipped in millions only to customers in the heavy industrial and medical markets.

Prof. David Britton from PST Sensors demonstrating their temperature sensing systems (printed silicon nanoparticle negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor) to Raghu Das (IDTechEx) at Printed Electronics Europe. PST sells the ability to put temperature sensing into everything, anywhere. Working with its customers, PST Sensors has developed a suite of temperature sensing systems which cannot be manufactured using other technologies. These include not only fully flexible and large area temperature sensing systems, but also sensor arrays. At the heart of PST Sensors' product range is a silicon nanoparticle negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor which can be printed on almost any material including paper, fabric and polymer film, with an almost infinite choice of form factors.
