Textile Embedded Vital Health Signs Monitor – Upgrade Testing Equipment

The goal in medicine is prolong life and prevent disease before it spreads and becomes irreversible. There must be a way to easily self-monitor or to allow medical professionals to continuously remotely monitor high risk patients. The main vital signs that ideally should be constantly evaluated are pulse rate, respiration rate, body temperature, oxygen saturation levels and blood pressure. Other secondary figures that should be watched over are glucose levels, cholesterol levels among others.
