The 'Welbi' is an adult health monitor that can monitor and relay real health and vital measurements from a distance.

Caring for an elderly family member requires a great deal patience and care, and despite one's best intentions, it's simply not possible to be with that individual at all times. To provide caregivers with more peace of mind, Welbi offers analytics such as breathing and heart rates, without one having to be in the room. The device, which connects to a mobile app, communicates that information to selected family members.

The Welbi provides a medical means of communication to those who are more vulnerable, without reminding the user of their sickness, or burdening one with invasive testing.
