Chronic Diseases Management
Diseases such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease and sleep disorders all require health monitoring. A patient's vital signs (e.g. heart rate, temperature) and disease-specific indicators (e.g. blood pressure, blood glucose level, EKG) are monitored to determine anomalies and spot trends. These can also be monitored remotely so that a physician can track your health progress in real-time.
For the elderly or ambulatory, wellness monitoring can ensure safety. Whether living at home or an assisted living facility, monitoring devices can tell whether the individual is in bed, has left the house or has left the stove on. Individuals with diseases that reduce their ability to care for themselves can potentially avoid admission to skilled nursing facilities by using these devices.
Tracking fitness can increase well-being. A number of parameters the individual wishes to monitor are recorded during a workout routine. For example, while running on a treadmill, the individual monitors heart rate, temperature and blood oxygen level. This information is displayed on the treadmill's console.
