HEART CHECK BEDS TO BE DEVELOPED

Feb 23, 2008


A project funded by the European Union and Philips will test a sensor packed bed associated with sensors in sleep clothing to monitor cardiac patients. The goal is to have patients monitor themselves, spot problems befor they become life threatning, and reduce unnecessary hospitalization.

The bed would include an electronic weight scale, blood pressure monitor and heart rate sensors. Breathing rate and body movement would also be measured during sleep. The data would be analysed on a PDA and electronically forwarded to medical professionals. Abnormal sleep patterns could also be monitored.
