Big Data Can Help Predict Personal Health Risks, Stanford Study Shows

Tracking genetic and molecular health data regularly – rather than only when a health condition arises – can help physicians predict the onset of disease and provide insights into the development of highly personalized treatments, according to a study conducted by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and their collaborators. Prof. Michael Snyder, […]
Omron physIQ partnership

Omron and physIQ Collaborate to Improve Cardiovascular Patient Care

Omron Healthcare has partnered with physIQ to integrate Omron’s wearable blood pressure monitor, HeartGuide, into physIQ’s pinpointIQ® platform to monitor at-risk patients in an outpatient setting. The partnership is aimed at generating actionable clinical information for at-risk patients in an outpatient environment by leveraging the complementary technologies of each company. Omron is the global leader […]

VitalTag Wearable Health Monitor Wirelessly Sends Patient’s Vital Signs Data

A first responder’s job is strenuous enough, but when mass casualty incidents such as shootings, multiple car pili ups and earthquakes occur, first responders can easily be overwhelmed by the sheer number of victims. Monitoring all the victims in a situation like this can be very difficult. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific […]
Stress Sweat sensor

This Wearable Patch Detects Stress Hormone in Sweat

Stress affects us in numerous ways. Affecting blood pressure and metabolism to immune response and memory, stress can lead to the development of chronic diseases. Researchers are focusing on sweat as a way to detect stress levels. However, wearables that use sweat to detect stress normally track heart rate, temperature, and perspiration levels as markers […]

Ultrasound patch

This Wearable Stick-On Ultrasound Patch Can Measure Blood Pressure Deep Inside Body

Scientists at the University of California San Diego created a new wearable ultrasound patch that non-invasively monitors blood pressure in arteries deep beneath the skin such as the jugular vein and carotid artery. The new patch could be helpful in detecting cardiovascular problems earlier on and with greater precision. In a proof-of-concept study, the patch […]
