Healthcare smartphone soon available

An exciting new healthcare smartphone (LifeWatch V, LifeWatch AG) will soon be available, which has a range of medical sensors, health applications, cloud-based services and 24/7 call center support.

Operating on an android operating system, the phone uses sensors embedded in the frame, to capture, collect and analyse health and medical measurements. The features include ECG, body temperature, blood glucose, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, body fat percentage and “stress levels”.

All collected data can be retrieved from the cloud for a follow-up. Users can thus take corrective action, plan their diets and activities, securely share the information with a health provider or family member, trend and analyse the data and more. Patients are also able to programme the unit to remind them of their drug type, dose and intake time.

The LifeWatch V handset unit, provided by a Swiss manufacturer, wirelessly interacts with a cloud-based environment allowing users direct access to a wide range of valuable complementary medical and health services.

LifeWatch intends to launch the healthcare solution smartphone world-wide next year.
