Sunday Quicknote: Follow Up on Smarthomes and Health

March 27, 2016

In our most recent todaysnote Smarthomes and the Elderly, we discussed applications of Smarthomes for the elderly and sick, who may need special monitoring.  Today’s quicknote explores one product that may ultimately come into play in this market. A California company, Vital Connect, manufactures several sensors that are designed for a connected environment. (There is no relationship between Vital Connect and todaysnote).

The sensors are described in this Vital Connect article on Bloomberg on the Bloomberg Business site. While I believe they are aimed at use by doctors today, it seems possible that they can be used in the home either after being prescribed by a doctor, or potentially for patient directed use at some future point in time.
