Remote Monitoring of the Heart

A new wireless sensor patch from Corventis allows automated early detection of heart failure.

The patch measures temperature, heart and respiration rates, levels of physical activity, body position, and body-fluid levels, then beams data to a special cell-phone-like gadget in the patient’s pocket or home. From there, the data is wirelessly transmitted to the company’s servers, where algorithms detect anomalies and trigger alerts to doctors, who could then view the data from the Web or from their own mobile devices.
