About Us

VivoSense is a data analysis consulting and software company specializing in wearable sensor physiological monitoring solutions for research and clinical trials.

We are the first analytics company to develop novel digital biomarkers from wearable sensor data which constitute primary and secondary clinical endpoints in regulated international pharmaceutical trials. Several of these studies are in rare disease indications, and have reached the open-label phase of development at top-ten pharma.

The VivoSense Story

VivoSense - About Us

The founding team at VivoSense met and worked together at VivoMetrics, Inc., which manufactured and commercialized one of the first multichannel wearable sensors called LifeShirt. Applications for the LifeShirt (purchased by adidas in 2008) platform include aerospace research, infant monitoring, drug and device clinical trials (e.g. cough monitoring), and media/commercial research. The LifeShirt platform was supported using an analysis software known as VivoLogic. VivoSense was created to become the second-generation version of VivoLogic which would service ALL commercially available wearable sensors, many of which were predicated on the LifeShirt sensor.

The creation of VivoSense software was initially funded with a $1M grant from the US Navy which required software for the interrogation of physiological sensors placed directly on-body. From inception copies of VivoSense software were sold to academic researchers and not for profit companies that continue to provide academic validation and peer-reviewed publications using the software. VivoSense has subsequently grown to service the pharmaceutical clinical trials industry using the software as the environment in which new digital biomarkers are created.
