The 'iBeat' is a wearable heart monitor that combines healthcare with fashion. When people think of all-day healthcare devices, they usually imagine a sterile, clinical looking device like an oxygen tank or a portable IV. Virtually indistinguishable from a smartwatch, the iBeat lets users wear a comfortable and attractive health device, allowing them to maintain their pride and independence.
The wearable heart monitor tracks important heart activity like pulse oxymetry and heart-rate intervals. If it detects irregularities at any point, it will ask the user if they are feeling okay and can notify authorities automatically if the answer is no. If the problems are serious enough, such as in the case of cardiac arrest, iBeat can contact emergency responders and family immediately and without user input. The iBeat operates without having to connect to a smartphone, a necessary feature for seniors who may not own any other digital devices.
