With This Device, Doctors Can Monitor Patients Eight Vitals Continuously
Vital Connect (San Jose, CA) just announced that the FDA cleared its HealthPatch MD sensor for monitoring patients while they’re at home.
The device sticks to the chest and continuously records a one lead ECG, heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, as well as the temperature of the skin.
It also has an accelerometer built in that senses the person’s posture and can detect falls.
The sensor itself is reusable, while a disposable patch, which comes with a choice of three adhesives, is used to stick it onto the chest.
