Markets in Everything: Android-based Healthcare Smartphone Packed with Medical Sensors
MedGadget -- "LifeWatch AG (Neuhausen am Rheinfall, Switzerland) has presented the LifeWatch V (see video above), a feature-packed healthcare smartphone for patients and health conscious consumers. At its core, the LifeWatch V is a pretty standard Android-based phone. However, what sets it apart is the presence of a plethora of medical sensors powering seven health tests, combined with wellness-related applications and cloud-based services. The health tests are operated by placing a finger on one of the sensors, allowing users to measure, track and analyze their medical measurements, take corrective action, plan meals, activities and more.
There is no information on pricing or availability yet, but LifeWatch intends to launch the healthcare solution smartphone world-wide in collaboration with local partners."
