It is no surprise that now a days billions of people worldwide use smartphones. The devices are so much more than a phone they are just like a world of knowledge right in the palms of our hands. And now, they can even monitor our health. Technology company Azoi has launched a smartphone case that can measure key vital signs.
The health tracker is called Wello. It consists of a number of sensors that are embedded into a case that fits onto a smartphone. When held up with both hands, the sensors can measure a series of vital signs, including blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature and blood oxygen. It also comes with an add-on device that can measure lung function. The data is then sent to a Wello app that can be downloaded onto the smartphone. This allows users to have quick access to their health information and even track trends that may indicate they are becoming ill.
Wello can also connect with other health and fitness devices, such as pedometers and sleep monitors. Furthermore, it has remote access, meaning it can monitor and track the vital signs of family members. By regularly monitoring vital signs Wello can allow earlier detection of a major health problem like heart disease as well as other health problems. By using this novel smartphone our too often health problems may be detected before they are too late to address. In addition, the device could help ease the growing burden on health care services.
