In the summer of 2018, VitalConnect launched the VistaTablet as an extension to their FDA-approved biosensor, the VitalPatch, which measures eight vital parameters.

VitalPatch

VitalPatch is a thin, about half as thick as a standard wrist watch, and lightweight wearable patch, meant to be disposable and used for only a five-day stretch. The smart patch is capable of pulling some really high-quality data.

Consisting of two oval-shaped sensor areas to enable the placement of two ECG/EKG leads, the patch could be positioned in one of two locations on the torso, one of which is favored for obese patients.
