Sensium Digital Plaster – in future world, sticking plaster make you better


The Sensium Digital Plaster is a wireless monitoring patch designed to provide a discreet wireless way to monitor a patient’s vital signs. The small plaster attaches to the body like an ordinary Band-Aid and delivers information on things like heart rate, temperature and perspiration for a period of several days after which it is thrown away.


To give it that true Sci-Fi feel, the technology can also interface wirelessly to smartphones and PDAs which means your doc can be sitting at home watching the latest House and still be in touch with all your vital bits and pieces as you struggle with the hospital food. Good to know eh? Watch out for some smart-alec sticking plasters in a drawer near you real soon.

 Sensium provides the complete wireless infrastructure to allow healthcare providers to monitor the human body continuously, wirelessly and intelligently and at low-cost, with the robustness and medical compliance normally associated with considerably more expensive capital equipment…Powered by thin batteries, body-worn Sensium-enabled monitors deliver clinical-quality data and intelligently integrate it into an electronic medical record via a network…
