Smart Toilet Seat

The smart toilet seat includes three key sensors: an electrocardiogram to measure electrical activity of the heart; a photoplethysmogram to measure blood oxygen levels; and a ballistocardiogram to measure the mechanical force of the heart pumping blood. Sensors in this battery-powered, cloud-connected toilet seat–based cardiovascular monitoring system successfully demonstrated cardiovascular monitoring of blood pressure, stroke [...]

Biosensors: Avoiding errors measuring physiological functions like EKG, heart rate, and temperature

Wearable medical devices are biosensors attached to the human body to detect and monitor changes and capture biological / physiological data. These devices are usually non-invasive devices that function autonomously. Monitoring older adults and subjects with chronic conditions in the home and community are a growing focus of these applications. Common types of physiological functions [...]
