Health 2.0: eHealth Needs Hardware, Too

Gienna Shaw, for HealthLeaders Media, October 3, 2011

An online component has a food journal and analyzes the raw data on calories, sleep and patterns, and offers personalized recommendations. There's a mobile phone app, too.

Wear your heart on your ear

A personal hart rate monitor, which also made its debut at the show, is touted as a stress-management tool. Using a small ear clip, the monitor tracks an individual’s heart rate variability and provides feedback via its mobile and web applications on how to reduce variability through slow breathing exercise. MyCalmBeat was created by Brain Resource, Ltd.

Track your health on the cuff

A blood pressure cuff that connects to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and allows users to measure systolic and diastolic pressures as well as their heart rate. Results are displayed in real time and stored so users can track their progress over time. The Withings device also allows users to send results to their physician via email.
