Smart Ring Enables High-Quality Data Acquisition & Analysis

Good things come in small packages, especially when they are mobile, cloud-connected, and compact enough to fit on a finger.

The Research Ring from BIOPAC partner Senstream is a revolutionary research platform that enables the capture of high-quality data from numerous physiological signals on a single, small, user-friendly device. Research-grade in a friendly consumer form factor, the Research Ring collects electrodermal activity (EDA, aka GSR) data, pulse (with an optical sensor), electrocardiogram (ECG), and temperature. Data is automatically uploaded to the cloud for analysis and can be synchronized with AcqKnowledge in real time or imported into AcqKnowledge asynchronously from the mobile application.

Join BIOPAC and the Research Ring’s inventors, Senstream, on September 1st, 2022 to learn about the emerging technology that will enhance wearable biometric research in the real world.

What You Will Learn:

  • Technology preview of the Research Ring
  • The spec data, including sampling rates, battery life, etc.
  • How the Research Ring is different from other wearables
  • Use cases for researchers in the lab and “in the wild”
  • How to utilize the mobile app, web app, and integrate with AcqKnowledge software
  • See how it works!


Hugh Lusted, Ph.D.,  Dr. Lusted is a founding partner at Senstream, Inc. He earned his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Stanford University School of Medicine in 1980 and has since focused on developing high-quality portable biosignal acquisition systems. Dr. Lusted was a founding partner at BioControl Systems where he developed early-generation wearables for EEG, EMG, ECG, and EOG applications.


Alex Fajkowski is a software developer working with Senstream to build mobile, cloud, and web applications. Alex has developed software for a number of industries including television, financial services, healthcare, education, retail, and federal government. Alex is currently focused on digital signal processing and analysis. He has his BS in Computer Science from Cornell University.
