We don’t typically write about security products on Health Tech Insider. EyeVerify’s Eyeprint ID was an early exception in 2015 based on its potential application to protect personal health data user on a user’s smartphone. Beseye’s Skeleton-Print technology caught our attention at CES 2021 for its use in remote rehabilitation monitoring. Taiwan-based Beseye collaborates with other companies that use Beseye’s Skeleton-Print for AI video analysis with existing security cameras. As you may have discerned, Skeleton-Print is a play on “fingerprint” or “retina print.”

Skeleton-Print analyzes human posture and behavior. The Beseye technology works from a distance and doesn’t require specific angles or ranges. The analytics software platform supports more than 90% of security cameras currently on the market, according to Beseye. Near-universal hardware support saves customers significant expense because they don’t need to replace existing security monitoring equipment in order to use Skeleton-Print.

Security may be the first application that comes to mind for skeletal analysis, but Beseye suggests a wider application catalog. Skeleton-Print can help stores understand their customers’ behavior, according to Beseye founder and CEO Shaq Tu in a CES 2021 news release. The analytics software can also detect falls, fights, and could be useful in understanding customer or visitor movement routes, patterns, and engagement time. Skeleton-Print can monitor employee progress, technique, and adherence to company standards in manufacturing and production environments. And more directly tied to health tech issues, the technology can track patient posture and long-term progress during rehabilitation.
