I agree on watch concept
bklocman   8/11/2011 3:14:11 PM
Yes I agree, watches is a great form factor.  I do congradulate the inventors of the ZeoPatch.  It is definitely a much better form factor than wearing a christmas tree around your body.

see http://medgadget.com/cardiology for a WriskWatch to detect sudden cardiac arrest

The most significant contribution this invention could make to healthcare, IMHO, is to eliminate waking up patients in the hospital a 4 o'clock in the morning to take vitals.  There are already a panoply of halter monitors available for monitoring arrhythmias for ambulatory patients, and this is truly an incremental improvement for that application. 

I did check out their website, and must agree it looks pretty slick. In the spirit of fairness, though, they should recognize prior and ongoing work in this area, such as the "Smart Watch" (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~asim/) and others.

Re: Band Aid and Beyond

This is definitely open to interpretation, in my opinion. Band-aids come in all shapes and sizes. Who's to say the device makers aren't already targeting the miniature size, as opposed to the standard? I would think, once the technology hits the market, smaller devices will soon follow.

Band Aid and Beyond
Beth Stackpole   7/29/2011 8:50:55 AM
It's interesting they've targeted a band-aid as the optimal size and form factor. You say they're making progress--any sense on when those size devices might actually hit the market? Also I would think with all the innovation around miniaturization going on in the medical and electronics field, an even smaller size form factor for these devices isn't that far away.

I believe biology will be to the 21st century what electronics was to the twentieth. Namely, the single most important arena of human advances/invention/progress. It's interesting, and fascinating to see, a kind of Venn diagram period now as the center of innovation gravity, so to speak, shifts from electronics to medical, and we have advances in medical electronics. For the Design News community, the particularly stringent form factor, reliability, and power consumption requirements of highly miniaturized medical design will be a challenge and also an opportunity for engineers and designers to push the envelope while refining new techniques and processes.
