Molly Maskrey, CTO of Quantitative Bioanalytics Labs (QBLabs), presents "Circuits to Cha Cha" to the Denver iOS Developer User Group, September 15th. Ms. Maskrey's discussion fuses the concrete with the abstract, combining MEMS sensors, Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE), Swift, and WatchKit with the expressive art form of dance, allowing empirical performance measurement for what, today, is purely subjective. Not just a theoretical dialogue, Ms. Maskrey demonstrates her work using hardware and software she designed.

Ms. Maskrey worked for the US government and various aerospace companies on projects ranging from satellite systems to submarines and everything in between. After co-founding several companies including Global Tek Labs, an industry leader in the Apple MFi consulting space, she turned to medical diagnostic tools for reducing the costs associated with physical therapy, initially focusing on adolescent movement measurement for Cerebral Palsy patients though QBLabs' new product, MovementTek. With degrees in Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science, she currently focuses on high-resolution sensor technology for Instrumented Gait Analysis with Children's Hospital Colorado's participation for design calibration. When not in the lab or in front of a computer, she can be found either paddleboarding or perfecting her Cha Cha on the dance floor.
MovementTek is a system of high-resolution sensor modules, capable of capturing spatial orientation and movement data in real-time through the use of integrated circuits, wireless communication, and mobile devices (e.g. AppleWatch or iPad). It measures 9 axes of data through the integration of an accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope into an elegant system of small sensor modules.
Use of mobile sensors can be considered an accessible and affordable screening tool for disease diagnosis, evaluation and prevention. The MovementTek system is also useful for performance enhancement and injury prevention for professional, collegiate, high school and elite athletes. Physical therapy clinics, hospitals and sports medicine performance clinics could all benefit from deploying MovementTek sensor systems.
This presentation follows Ms. Maskrey's recent keynote "Apple HomeKit and the Internet of Things", at the inaugural TechrIoT Outburst meeting in Parker, CO. This brief overview detailed the architecture of Apple's home innovation model, how it fits into the broader IoT model, its highlights and lowlights, why it has taken developers so long to adopt, and a survey of some of the current HomeKit offerings.
