BioRICS’ mission is to improve the overall wellness, health condition, mental status and performance of the individual by translating data from the body into meaningful information.
To realise this, BioRICS has developed algorithms and built a sound expertise to apply them in the field of human condition monitoring (physical condition, mental status, sleep quality and sleepiness). These algorithms are application-specific and have been made fit for integration into new, cutting-edge products of BioRICS and their customers.
- Help people to better “connect” with their body, by giving insight on how their body responds to specific events in daily life (physical activity, mental pressure, anxiety, high workload, sleepiness, etc.).
- Make monitoring easy and fun by supplying attractive wearable soft- and hardware.
- Become a reference and world class company in physical and mental status monitoring by offering a solution and not only a measurement tool. To realise this, BioRICS partners with specialized coaches.
BioRICS was created in 2006 as a spin-off of the research unit Measure, Model and Manage Bio Responses (M3-BIORES), the former Laboratory for Agricultural Buildings Research, of the Department Biosystems of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
Starting from research on larvae, mussels, plants and fish the research evolved to real time measurements of responses of animals. It was clear that all living organisms respond in an individual way to the environment and that these so called bioresponses are time-varying since they depend on age, health status, mental status, etc…The research group focused on techniques and algorithms to monitor and to predict responses of living organisms in real time for each individual at a given
M3-BIORES has now a staff of more than 20 enthusiastic researchers. It is one of the biggest scientific groups working worldwide in the field of integration of biological responses in the monitoring and control of living organisms (www.m3-biores.com).
