Healthcare management is becoming increasingly digitized as consumers seek to maintain more control over their own care, which is what the conceptual 'Oxygem' aims to enable. Designed by Hussain Almossawi, the device works by being worn on the finger and continuously monitoring the patient via the built-in sensors. This will help the system to detect for low blood oxygen levels that can be caused by red blood cells getting stuck together, which is common with sickle-cell disease.
The conceptual 'Oxygem' wearable boasts a minimalist design that makes it perfect for wearers looking to maintain a discreet profile. The aesthetic of the ring makes it indistinguishable from a traditional piece of jewelry and will even keep the wearer connected to their smartphone by alerting them of incoming notifications.
