Nikkei’s Tech-On! is reporting that WIN Human Recorder, a Japanese firm, has released a new body sensor and wireless reporting platform for continuous monitoring of patient vitals. The 7 gram HRS-I device seems to be a two lead electrocardiograph with a thermometer and an accelerometer as an activity sensor. All this is linked to a 2.4GHz wireless transmitter that communicates with a mobile phone or a computer, and it all can be continuously powered for three days by a watch battery. Unfortunately, Tech-On!‘s report seems to be the only source of information about the device and no more details are available. We’ll be on the lookout for anything else we can discover about the HRS-I.
