What's more important than your health? Not much, we think you'll agree. The team behind HealthPatch MD certainly knows our well-being is top of most of our lists -- so it made the aforementioned product to help monitor it. HealthPatch isn't a fitness-tracking wristband or a home health accessory; it's aimed at hospitals, doctors and medical services. What is it? It's a small patch with a module that monitors heart activity (ECG), heart rate (and variability), respiratory rate, skin temperature, activity posture and even fall detection. What makes it interesting is that it's also a connected device, so you no longer need to go to a medical facility to be monitored. You can just go about your normal life.
