Vital Connect HealthPatch MD biosensor
Vital Connect announced that it received Food & Drug Administration clearance to market its HealthPatch™MD biosensor for monitoring patients. The device sticks to the chest and continuously records a one-lead ECG, heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate and skin temperature. A built-in accelerometer can also detect falls. The product can be used to monitor patients with chronic conditions, for short-term monitoring after a patient is discharged from a hospital or as part of the follow-up care provided after a non-critical emergency room visit.
