BodyGuardian RMS allows for remote monitoring of heart conditions

Cardiac arrhythmias alludes to a range of heart conditions that denote unbalanced electrical activity in the heart. The very nature of their abnormality make the conditions hard to either predict or detect, thus resulting in life threatening medical emergencies. In this regard, semiconductor producer firm STMicroelectronics has teamed up with Preventice, a mobile health solution developer, to provide for an effective solution. The solution calls for a ‘real world’ remote monitoring of cardiac arrhythmias, which can be done even form the comfort of the patient’s home.

Hi Tech LED glasses developed for visually impaired

The capability to see is one of the greatest gifts provided to human beings, but there are many people around the world who either don’t inherit it by birth or might have lost vision due to some mishap. As a solution for any such vision impairment, a team of researchers at Oxford University under the leadership of Dr Stephen Hicks from the Department of Clinical Neuroscience have come up with a set of LED Glasses dubbed as ‘Smart Specs.’

Automated Anchoring Armour for people who get nervous in social gatherings

For people who get nervous very easily in social situations, Automated Anchoring Armour (AAA) comes as a real bane in any such condition. It employs the method of evoking positive memory with straight stimulus-response conditioning by linking the memory to a certain haptic sensation. AAA works by connecting biofeedback loop (that senses wearer’s state of insecurity) via a galvanic skin response (GSR) sensor and other components like linear actuator, Arduino board, battery pack and electronics are embedded into a mounting which is hooked onto a leather wristband for holding everything in place.
