Monitoring your health at home would be infinitely easier with the Health Assistant Device. The Health Assistant Device is one-part cellphone and one-part health monitor and was designed by Rochus Jacob.

When closed, the Health Assistant Device functions as a normal cellphone with an e-ink touch display. When slid open, the device becomes a health monitor, showing patients their vital signs as well as other information such as their sleeping patterns. The device is designed to sync up with medical servers to provide users with access to their medical information at a moment's notice.

Advances in technology and science have allowed people to live much longer. With people living longer it's only natural that they would want an inside view into their own health on-demand. Gadgets like the Health Assistant Device could do this and more, thanks to its added functionality.
