NASA technology benefits cardio-pulmonary patients

PUMA measures six components to evaluate metabolic function: oxygen and carbon dioxide partial pressure, volume flow rate, heart rate, and gas pressure and temperature. From those measurements, PUMA can compute the oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide output and minute ventilation (average expired gas flow rate). A small, embedded computer takes readings of each sensor and relays the data wirelessly to a remote computer via Bluetooth.

Health focused sensor technology dominated CES

The “sensorization” of CES was obvious.  Which technologies are meaningful, and which are simply stylish?  The health monitoring sector is set to grow exponentially in 2013. It’s important to understand the science behind the gadgets.  ApplySci, the crowdfunding platform, is committed to bringing you peer reviewed, life enhancing, sensor based mobile health monitoring technology.  And the ApplySci blog will regularly review this technology.  We welcome your input.
