MC10 said today it inked a limited exclusive distribution partnership with Marubun Corp. to distribute its BioStamp products in Japan.
The Lexington, Mass.-based company’s BioStamp sensor products are designed as wearable sensors that collect and transmit biometric data.
“Marubun strives to contribute to the advancement of science and technology by engaging with suppliers who are leaders in their respective fields and providing cutting-edge specialized electronics. Through our relationship with MC10, we are continuing in our mission to deliver the most innovative technology to our customers,” Marubun senior veep Satoshi Fujino said in a press release.
In addition to the distribution deal, Marubun also joined the company’s strategic equity investors, MC10 said.
“MC10 is dedicated to developing technology that enables a better understanding of human health. My past engagements with Marubun have demonstrated the corporation’s superior ability to bring new, emerging technologies to the Japanese market,” MC10 CEO Scott Pomerantz said in prepared remarks.
The deal will allow Marubun to distribute MC10’s recently cleared BioStamp Research Connect system, a flexible, wearable sensor that gathers physiological data.
The BioStamp RC is the 1st product that fully integrates the company’s BioStamp tech, which connects to the company’s cloud-based software, and allows researchers to share data with each other across multiple research sites. Patches can be used simultaneously on multiple body locations, the company said.
The product allows researches to gather raw kinematic and surface biopotential data through a 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope and integrated electrodes to gather surface electromyography and electro-cardiac activity.
