North Carolina-based eHeart Health Monitoring has unveiled new personal alert systems that continuously monitor the wearer’s condition and location and shares it securely with family members.
eHeart Health Monitoring’s alert systems have been monitoring heart rate, activity level and GPS location as well as detecting falls and user alerts since late 2014. The company will add to those capabilities on August 12, 2016 when they roll out additional sensor support for continuous monitoring of heart rate variability, skin temperature, respiration rate, activity level, and posture.
“We’re very excited about our new sensor capabilities,” said company president Eric Midgett.
In addition to tracking and storing biometrics data, eHeart Health Monitoring’s personal alert systems send SMS notifications to family or caregivers you choose if the wearer presses a “Help” button or if a fall is detected. The systems can also be configured to send notifications if the wearer’s heart rate reaches user defined high or low zones. Similar notifications for blood oxygen level, and a user defined “O2 target zone,” can also be configured.
“In addition to our traditional applications for mobile and home based monitoring, we’re also seeing some cross-over interest from exercise and sports enthusiasts who want to continuously monitor and record their numbers,” Midgett said.
eHeart Health Monitoring’s systems allow users to collect sensor data continuously for up to ten days and export the data for later analysis in common computer applications.
