“BodyGuardian” by Preventice (2014)

This product is a wearable and noninvasive wearable that tracks biometric data of patients and allows physicians to monitor them. The sensors measure things like heart rate, respiration rate, activity level, and blood pressure. Physicians can access the information online from anywhere and respond accordingly. The device is comfortable for the patient to wear and does not get in the way of daily activity. Security and patient privacy are also a large part in the design of the technology.


This product shows how Internet of things and connectivity can allow people to transmit important information even while not physically close. This kind of connectivity can save lives and have widespread applications in healthcare and communications. It also brings up the concern of how secure our information can be in a large network of personal data.
