For residents with Parkinson's disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), movements must be hindered when an assessment is conducted. For residents, the result can be confusion, aggravation and additional pain. But a wireless monitoring system could help alleviate this challenge, according to an article in the International Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Technology. Indian researchers have developed a system that uses vital signs sensors, a sensor network, electronic patient records and web portal technology that calls on medical personnel when life-threatening events occur. For both providers and residents, this could prove to be a much less painful solution.
