How Doctors Will Use Smartwatches to Increase Patient Care

Posted December 09, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

A new aspect of the monitoring system involves the use of smartwatches that can link to the metabolic monitors that are used with patients in intensive care. Patients' readings would be monitored in real time and stored on a central server so dangerous levels can be caught immediately, and an alert is sent directly to the doctor's wrist via Wi-Fi.

Unlike any consumer electronics designed /used on products like smart watches, etc., that are available in the market, Electronic circuitries designed and used for physiological parameter monitoring are required to meet certain minimum and rigid specifications.

Due to the nature of applications, the device must also be approved / validated by The FDA before any MD can order and/or prescribe them for patient use.
