Personal Health Status Monitor is a new wireless cardiac arrhythmia monitoring device. It was designed by Welch Allyn in cooperation with University of Ulster and its spin-off, Sensor Technology and Devices. According to the university press release, this gadget is easy to use and it is “highly sensitive” (whatever that means).
The device’s body-worn sensors wirelessly communicate the health status of the patient to the appropriate centre in the hospital, clinic or home, leaving the patient free to walk about and lead a normal life. The product provides continuous surveillance of the patient and enables the early detection of life threatening cardiac events.
