Blue Maestro Brings Us a Connected Pacifier

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Pacifier-PacifiThe team at BlueMaestro.com has now come up with the connected pacifier for those parents who want to keep track of their small children in a variety of ways. The Pacifi monitors your child’s internal temperature and sends that data to the accompanying free app using low energy Bluetooth. It also acts as a tracking device alerting parents when the child wanders too far away from the parent’s smartphone or connected mobile device.

Finally it will help you find it when it is misplaced by the child or parent by pinging the smartphone to its location and making an audible alert tone when your phone is nearby. This type of connected family monitoring technology gives parents a number of tools to help them keep track of their kid’s health and whereabouts. Find more information over at BlueMaestro.com.

MobileHelp Gives Anyone a Connected Home Monitoring Safety System

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

MobileHelp-ProductsMobileHelp.com’s base station home monitoring system has been around for a while now. This personal emergency response system allows primarily senior citizens to get help when they have a personal emergency.

There’s a mobile wearable component that allows the individual to leave the home and travel about and a home base station that keeps track of the person at home. The wearable component includes an automatic fall detection sensor as well as a panic button that allows the individual to press for alert in an emergency situation other than a fall.

That would be a lot of functionality all by itself certainly. The team at MobileHelp have now added low energy Bluetooth capability to allow the base station and cloud software to communicate with other medical devices like electronic blood pressure cuffs, blood sugar glucometers, bathroom scales and more. Check out the whole system at MobileHelp.com.

Quell-wearable-pain-reliefChronic musculoskeletal pain is a problem that millions of people in the United States deal with every day. Finding ways to deal with that pain that doesn’t always involve powerful and addictive drugs is problematic.

It works by sending small electric signals to the nerves in the leg and kind of “distracts” the brain from some or all of the pain suffered by a person.

This FDA approved device will be available in the spring 2015 and will cost around $250.00. To find out more about the Quell visit QuellRelief.com and get a handle on your chronic pain.

Monbaby Activity Tracker Helps Parents Monitor Infants Remotely

Monday, January 19th, 2015

monbaby-deviceOne of the things that Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic looked for while roaming the show floor in the various locations at the 2015 International CES expo was those innovative new health technology devices that might not get covered by the major media outlets. He found the Monbaby infant monitoring device while at the Sands Expo center in the digital health pavilion there.

Jamie chatted with Monbaby Founder Arturas Vaitaits about the new device for parents. It is an activity tracker that connects with parent’s smart phones and tablets via low-energy Bluetooth. The Monbaby clips to the baby’s clothing and will alert parents when the baby rolls over from back to belly or begins to move around signifying that they are awake. Because parents want their baby’s to sleep on their backs as much as possible as a prevention against SIDS, this can be a very useful tool for them to use when their children are very young.

The Monbaby device is available now for pre-order at Monbaby.com. It will be available for $169.00.

Monday, January 19th, 2015

makerbot_logoHealth Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic stopped by the MakerBot booth at CES 2015 to chat with Director of Public Relations Jenifer Howard about the ways that 3D printing is changing healthcare. She was involved with the “Robohand” project to create a prosthetic hand for someone using MakerBot’s 3D printers.

The Robohand project was initiated by two individuals, one in Seattle, Washington in the USA and the other in South Africa. They collaborated together and in just three days, using their MakerBot 3D printers and online software collaboration tools, were able to come up with a working template to print the parts for a functional 3D printed prosthetic hand.

Jenifer says that MakerBot and the 3D printing industry will continue to innovate with individuals and organizations around the world to create new tools and devices for everyday life.

Wellness and Activity Tracking From Polar Electro at CES

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Fitness Trackers in the past have followed just steps or just heart rate or some other parameter. The gang at Polar Electro have come up with a solution that actively monitors multiple parameters for overall fitness and wellness.

Polar-electro-watchThe CES Unveiled event is jam packed full of companies exhibiting new technologies. Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic attended to find the latest and greatest in health technology. He found the folks from Polar Electro and their Polar Electro A-300 sports watch and activity tracker.

Jamie chatted with Chris Zoller, senior product manager from Polar Electro, about the new A-300 that tracks fitness and activity with steps, running and similar things. It also tracks sleep, heart rate, and other wellness parameters to integrate both activity and wellness tracking into the same device. This has been one of the things that most fitness and wellness devices have not been able to do effectively.

Temp Traq Brings Parents Peace of Mind When Kids Are Sick

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Parents stay up all night worrying about sick children and their fevers. Temp Traq alleviates some of the anxiety with their child temperature tracking and monitoring tool.

TempTraqHealth Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic visited the CES Unveiled event in Las Vegas and checked out the exiting trends in health technology including the brand new Temp Traq device. Jamie interviewed John Gannon, President and CEO of TempTraq.com about the new device that attaches like a band-aid to a child so they can sleep and rest comfortably while their parents monitor their fever from close by.

As a health care professional and a parent, I know the anxiety experienced by parents when their young children are sick. The Temp Traq tool and accompanying smart phone app for iOS and Android provides a seamless solution to helping that parent or caregiver take care of the sick child with a fever. I could even see similar technology making its way into the health care workplace to monitor patients remotely with minimally invasive technologies like the Temp Traq.
