  1. Hello. Friends.

    I'm a electric engineer of Semiconductor and want to share with you about my new idea using a smart device.

    I have a interesting idea for new product and design.
    What do you think of below idea for new product? Appreciate your feedback if you are interest in my idea and design.

    -Offering idea-

    The concept of the device is that it checks one’s health condition daily such as blood pressure, heartbeat frequency and body temperature if we wearit as bracelet or watch. It has only alarm function with LED and sends thedata to private smart phone or tablet PC daily. And then we could monitor and keep on eyes on our health condition daily.

    What do you think of this idea?
    You can see the mockups ans picture at below site

    I need you feedback for crowdsourcing.

    How does it measure blood pressure?

    Cheers

    check out a company [may not exist any longer] called Vivimetrics.
    Their whole product line addressed EXACTLY the type function you're
    describing. From memory, their product line was to help attending
    physicians to monitor: simple ekg, pulse rate, blood pressure,
    temperature, three degrees of motion [want to see how active the
    patient is], breathing rate, lung volume, and optional oximeter
    measurment. The portable device on the patient communicated wireless
    to a home monitoring station that could then communicate via phone
    line to dump info at physicians' office. Also, if the portable
    monitoring went out of range, it switched to GSM cell towers to keep
    in touch, so 24/7 monitoring/linkage was possible. And of course
    'alarm' conditions coud be set to check if any biomeasurement went out
    of some set range.

    Every time I go to my Dr's office, they measure my BP with a bracelet
    device which stores the info. It does the same thing as other
    measurement devices (pump air and etc) but it surrounds the wrist rather
    than the upper arm. They walk away and come back later to look at the
    results.

    Thought you'd like to know my experience concerning this.

    Hi, Jeff -

    I would be very interested in seeing your recorded data if it is not too
    personal.

    How many MB would the file be?

    Thanks.

    With all due respect, please use your imagination.

    I cannot wear a watch because any watchband constricts my blood flow,
    causing my hand to go numb.
    So,it is possible to have a bracelet that (slightly) presses on one
    of the arteries to get pulse (easy part) and with a MEMS pressure gauge,
    BP might be derivable.

    That is EXACTLY the device i was referring to in my first response.
     
  8. Would you prefer a pendant necklace?

    Regarding blood pressure, the latest healthy recommended numbers
    are 120/80. (this week)
    But how was this found? My doc says in a quiet room, setting
    comfortably for at least 5 minutes. So what does measuring you BP at
    all hours in all stages of excitement, fits of rage and running from
    bandits have to do with a healthy BP of 120/80?
    Just curious.
    On my third medicine adjustment/change trying to get a change in my
    numbers.
    I had a record before the doc put me on meds, it made no diffence in
    my ave systolic, 134.8 to 134.3. Doc doubled my meds, then my systolic
    ave increased*. New med, I'll do some graphs soon. (had a few lower
    measurements)
    If this doesn't work, I might try exercise! :-/

    *Don't think I changed my mental/physical situation to account for an
    increase.
     
  10. You could probably get an actual health improvement by walking daily for
    30 minutes or so, rather than sit for the same time and analyse the
    results of such a device.

    Hello John. Thanks for your feedback. Piezo sensor or other could be used for measuring. But I should scrutinize more about the engineering part.

    Thanks for your idea

    Hello Syd.

    Thanks for your question. The measuring contents might be modified. It justone of contents related to healthcare. I will narrow down to limit.

    Hello Robert.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I have to visit that site and need research it.

    What do you think the function you mentioned merge with smart device such as ipad, iphone? measuring value and transfer the data to smart device daily.. And some apps make the graph or valuable form using a transfered data.

    Hello I'm not a millionaire.

    I just want to hear feedback or some reaction from you guys about the idea as crowdsourcing. Innovation result always comes from various imagination

    I have to research more and get feedback as crowdsourcing.

    I got your point.
    Thanks Rebert.
    I will be very helpful in terms of Design concept.

    Considering necklace type. but the probelm is the sensor.
    Thanks for your feedback

    Thanks for your feedback AMDX

    120/80 is the normal standard as you referred.
    I think the device check BP all the time and separate the BP level at excitement condition and quiet condition. I think engineering skill and advancedtechnology is really needed.

    Thank so much Jeff.
    Your comment is really helpful for engineering part and knowledge.
