MIT Technology Review features MD2K

The MIT Technology Review featured MD2K in a cover story in its Nov. 30 issue. The article, "These Wearables Detect Health Issues Before They Happen," focuses on sensor technology created by MD2K that collect raw sensor data via a smart watch and/or chest band. The technology contained in the EasySense chest band and MotionSense smart watch was developed by MD2K Sensor Technologist Emre Ertin of The Ohio State University.

EasySense uses micro-radar to measure heart activity and lung fluid volume, and MotionSense measures arm movements and tracks heart rate variability. They, along with AutoSense, a sensor developed before MD2K was funded, are used by MD2K to detect biomarkers that can be used to ascertain changes in the user's health status.
