LifeWatch V Smartphone With Healthcare Capabilities Expands Possibility of Remote Patient Monitoring
June 28, 2012 — LifeWatch AG, a wireless cardiac monitoring service and home sleep test provider in the United States, presents LifeWatch V, the world’s first-of-its-kind healthcare smartphone. The fully featured state-of-the-art smartphone allows patients as well as health- and wellbeing-conscious consumers to self-operate a wide range of highly valuable embedded medical sensors, wellness-related applications, cloud-based services and 24/7 call center support.
The solution offers multiple sophisticated embedded medical miniature sensors, wellness-related applications, cloud-based services and 24/7 call center support. By using the barely visible sensors on the phone’s frame, patients as well as health- and wellbeing conscious consumers can track, capture, collect and analyze their health and medical measurements anywhere anytime. The features include ECG, body temperature, blood glucose, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, body fat percentage and stress levels (heart rate variability). All collected data can be retrieved from the cloud for a follow-up anytime anywhere. Users can thus take corrective action, plan their diets and activities, securely share the information with a health provider or family member, trend and analyze the data and more. Patients are also able to program the unit to remind them of their drug type, dose and intake time.
Based on a full and complete Go-to-Market analysis LifeWatch intends to launch the healthcare solution smartphone world-wide. In the initial markets LifeWatch has identified several local partners to enter into strategic partnerships.
