Huawei opens largest health lab in Dongguan to the media

Huawei’s Consumer Business Group opened its largest Health Laboratory to date to the media. The new 4,680-square-meter facility is located in Songshan Lake, Dongguan, China representing a 200 million yuan investment project in (Investment and Development (R&D), which will support more than 80 kinds of requests for testing for R&D personnel in fields such as professional research, joint ecosystem development, incubation of health scenarios, and testing of Huawei smart wearable products.

Huawei currently manages multiple labs to study health-related technology, including the Xi’an Lab that focuses on innovative use cases for health and fitness technologies. Songshan Lake Health Laboratory becomes a world-class health and fitness technology R&D institute engaged in product R&D, standard R&D, certification, exhibitions and industry incubation activities. Huawei’s smart health and notebook business has brought consumers many innovative science-based health and fitness products and services in recent years.

Huawei displayed the results of its previous research in the field of health and fitness on an open day to the media to provide a more detailed explanation of how the laboratory will fulfill its functional and research responsibilities. One of the samples included the simulation lab, which replicates high-altitude environments up to 6,000 meters above sea level to test how oxygen saturation affects the human body. The laboratory contains the facilities necessary for researchers to measure changes in the human body at different altitudes and climatic conditions and obtain accurate high-altitude data for analysis.

The lab also has a professional optical motion capture system, including 28 high-speed infrared cameras that support a maximum sampling rate of 10,000 Hz, allowing you to accurately record a wide range of subjects, including moving bullets. millimeter level. By studying the movement of the human body together with attitude data, Huawei hopes to develop new and innovative functions for its smart wearable products.

In addition, this laboratory has the exercise physiology research area, which comes equipped with cardiopulmonary and metabolism meters, heart rate belts and high performance runners so that researchers can monitor oxygen consumption, calorie consumption, and the heart rate of the workout. To date, the lab has already captured about 192,500 kilometers of data from running this year, equivalent to four and a half laps around Earth’s equator. Huawei’s smart wearable products support more than 100 training modes thanks to these labs, including rock climbing, swimming, table tennis, golf, and multi-functional sports.

Huawei’s new Health Lab will also serve as an incubator for scenario-oriented experiences and service packages that consumers can enjoy directly, including a micro physical exam, a home gym and digital sports. In the area of ​​laboratory micro physical exams, users can use Huawei wearable products to measure physical indicators such as blood pressure and oxygen saturation monitoring.

In the indoor gym area, users can start tracking their exercise by connecting the Huawei smartwatch, a Huawei Vision TV, and other third-party equipment. In the area of ​​digital sports, users can compete with friends while using rowing machines and stationary bikes. Huawei’s Health App now also offers 11 types of training courses including running, cycling, yoga, fitness, jumping, and more.

Huawei has invested heavily in research on digital health and fitness technologies and in active partnerships with industry authorities and related ecosystem partners. Currently, more than 5 million users have joined the Huawei Research Program and more than 320 million users have benefited from Huawei’s health and fitness services. There are currently more than 83 million global average monthly active users of the Huawei health app.

Huawei’s privacy protection policies have stated that privacy is a basic consumer right. As such, the company prevents third parties from accessing user data without the explicit consent of the user and requires that all of its ecosystem partners adhere to a strict privacy and security regime.
