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.

Luminette Light Therapy Helps Treat the Winter Blues

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Luminette-devicePeople who travel a lot as well as those who deal with the winter blues or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) have one thing in common. They can benefit from a simple technology called “photo-therapy.” Photo or light therapy uses the wavelengths of daylight shining in the eyes to stop production of the sleep hormone melatonin in the brain. This is also thought to contribute to some aspects of depression.

Frequent travelers and sufferers of the winter blues will find that the Luminette from Lucimed.com is a perfect tool to help them with this problem. The device resets daylight cycles in the body and reduces melatonin production. Already in widespread use in Europe, the Luminette glasses are coming to the United States soon.

Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic chatted with Lucimed General Manager Eric Delloye about the Luminette that lets you continue working on your daily chores while you wear it, unlike many photo therapy systems that require you to sit next to a light fixture for a period of time. Check it out at MyLuminette.com.
