About Us

Salutron is a global supplier of heart rate and activity monitoring solutions for health, sports & fitness and other consumer applications.

Not just a research lab, hardware developer, or algorithm company…

Salutron’s team of engineers and scientists delivers an unique blend of consumer wearable experience, advanced physiological research expertise and a passion for accuracy and reliability.  In 1995, our founders had a close friend unexpectedly pass away from cardiovascular disease, and ever since, our mission has been to deliver superior science in order to improve lives.

Today, our technology is used in leading global brands of cardio fitness equipment, in chest straps and heart rate monitoring watches, in advanced research projects, and in cutting-edge activity tracker products.

With ongoing physiological research activities and scientific studies focused on better ways to analyze and understand information available from the body, this will enable the Salutron team to build and deliver robust technology for consumer, industrial and medical wearables.

  • 20 years of delivering consumer heart rate monitoring solutions
  • Leading provider of ECG heart rate sensing modules for health club equipment industry
  • ODM proficiency in fitness watches, activity trackers, fitness monitoring
  • Research base in optical/photoplethysmogram (fNIRS, PPG), electrophysiological (ECG, EEG, EOG, EMG), motion (multi-axis), and environmental (full spectrum light, temp) measurements
  • All intellectual property internally developed

The new Bioprobe platform combines Salutron’s research, hardware, and software capabilities to deliver a high performance, customizable physiological monitoring engine for wearable device manufacturers.
