SCHOTT SmartSeal®

Our housing solutions are suitable for a variety of wearables, including healthcare devices, smartwatches, and smart earbuds. Enabling highly accurate measurements, a glass-to-metal or glass-to-ceramic sealed housing is more waterproof than a plastic case, so can be used in corrosive environments such as underwater.

Wearable medical devices

The healthcare industry is being transformed by wearable medical devices, with fitness trackers able to detect steps, heart rate, and calories burned. In clinical medicine, wearable devices can collect, analyze, and transmit personal health data, enabling doctors to monitor a patient’s condition in real time. SCHOTT’s wearable housing components can reduce signal noise and improve optical signal transmission, helping wearable devices meet demanding medical requirements. These components also enable high potentials in new features, such as GSR (galvanic skin response), ECG (electrocardiography) and body temperature measurement.

Smart earbuds and hearables

Today, smart hearables are commonly used for hearing aids, wireless audio transmission, medical monitoring, fitness tracking, and other applications that give the user entirely new experiences not possible with traditional headsets But while the small size of hearables can be a challenge for designers, the thin profile of SCHOTT wearable housing components leave space for components and batteries.
