Heart attacks and arrhythmias can happen in at least expected places – that is why lifesaving care demands constant monitoring of crucial vital signs, not only in intensive care units. HealthWatch, a pioneer in harnessing textile technology, developed the MasterCaution®, the first and only 3-12 lead ECG smart digital garment that is CE/FDA-Cleared. This is a non-lifestyle changing disruptive technology, based on wearable textile-electrodes and heart-sensing sensors and technologies, providing accurate digital health diagnostic services including mobile cardiac telemetry, patient monitoring tele-health services and other services that allow for in-home medical services.

Another device that can save your life is the heart monitoring smartwatch of iBeat. Equipped with medical-grad sensors the smartwatch continually monitors users’ 24-7 heart activity. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, iBeat will instantly alert the user, their loved ones, emergency responders, and their Heart Hero network in real-time, helping ensure immediate care delivery and potentially saving the user’s life. Almost 600,000 people suffer from sudden heart stoppages every year. iBeat is a technology company empowering people to be fearless, explore, and live longer lifes.

Bladder control is a common issue after having children.
