The Chilean based Company BioDevices recently unveiled Vital Jacket – a wearable vital-signs monitoring system. From The Future of Things..

Vital Jacket is currently available in two versions: HWM100 stores data on a SD memory card for viewing and analysis on a computer and allows for long term monitoring. Users can input heart rate limits and be alerted through a vibration alarm embedded in the T-Shirt when the set limits are exceeded.

The second version, HWM200, allows signals to be sent directly to a PDA or cell phone. BioDevices plans further refinement to the wearable heart monitor so that medical professionals can receive live data about their patients’ health 24 hours a day using a wireless LAN. quotesmarksleft.jpg
