What an intriguing innovation. Looks like a very cool direction in healthcare. I imagine soon we will be monitoring our own vitals with smart phone add-ons, and then broadcasting the data to our caregivers for both a historic record and emergency alerts.
“Compared to the various monitors and other bedside systems often tethered to those in care, this system affords patients with wide improvements in mobility. But even more importantly, the monitor is networked and allows caregivers to keep track of a patient’s conditions even when they’re out of sight through the use of a smartphone app.”
