Introduction

Avalun is an innovative company creating high tech healthcare devices to improve patient’s life here and now.

Normally, a blood test requires the patient having to experience a painful prick to draw blood, especially for those with degraded veins. In addition, getting the test results takes at least 10 to 12 hours after blood is removed. This delay in time can be critical for some patients waiting to start the right treatment.

Challenge

The challenge was to create a small portable device, enabling a wide range of tests and providing real-time results. These include:
– Creating a cost-effective solution offing a real-time display while providing interfaces for M2M connectivity (Machine-2-Machine)

Avalun collaborated with leaders such as the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA / Leti), to conceive this revolutionary medical solution:
– A portable Point-of-Care system named “LabPad”

Solution

CEA / Leti recommended MicroEJ as the ideal software solution to reduce the complexity of the LadPad development process, based on their satisfaction with previous MicroEJ projects.

MicroEJ is an optimized software platform (Smartphone OS Like) to create and connect IoT and embedded devices. It was the perfect fit to program and integrate all the device capabilities in a faster and easy way, including an attractive and intuitive graphical display.

LabPad, a smart medical device

  • Fully automated “plug-and-play” behaviour
  • Versatile device enabling a wide range of test
  • Real-time results displayed on the screen after processing
  • Easy sharing of results via Bluetooth
  • Medical certified

 

Gains on Avalun development process

  • Advanced user interface for a user-friendly product
  • Quick development for fast market integration

MicroEJ enables development efforts to be streamlined while handling levels of complexity, through separation of concerns. As software grows, developers can keep elements small and independent from each other to avoid jeopardizing the full software stack.

A unique capability of MicroEJ is the “simulator”, greatly reducing development costs and time as collaborators can first prototype the UI while optimizing complex software processes (development and automatic testing).

Significant reduction in the development cycle (time-to-market) is achieved, thanks to the parallelization of hardware & software development with a “virtualization” layer. MicroEJ’s hardware simulator enables developing embedded software without waiting for hardware or BSP availability.

“LabPad is technically a very complex device, including many features and services working in parallel. Thanks to MicroEJ we were able to simplify the global device management and reduce the development time. We save time and money!”
