New Wearable For Managing Chronic Illness By Christine Kern A prototype for proactive COPD patient management was unveiled at Dreamforce 2014. A prototype of a new device to support patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been launched by Royal Philips and Radboud University Medical Center. The device is the result of a joint venture designed to leverage mobile, digital, and cloud technological applications to improve patient outcomes, care coordination, and patient empowerment to healthcare. According to a press release, managing chronic COPD can be difficult and expensive as the progressive nature of the disease often leads to complicated therapies and frequent hospital readmissions. Patients affected by COPD are looking to take greater control over their personal health and this prototype is seen as a way to empower them to do just that.
Wearable technology Wearable technology, fashionable technology, wearable devices, tech togs, or fashion electronics are clothing and accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic technologies. The designs often incorporate practical functions and features, but may also have a purely critical or aesthetic agenda. History Into the abyss: The diving suit that turns men into fish - Science - News The invention of scuba diving has allowed us to breathe underwater but only at very shallow depths. Thanks to our inability to conquer the bends, diving below 70m still remains astonishingly dangerous to anyone but a handful of experts. Ultra-deep diving is so lethal that more people have walked on the moon than descended below 240m using scuba gear. Now an inventor in the United States believes he has solved the riddle of how to get humans down to serious depths – by getting us to breathe liquid like fish. Arnold Lande, a retired American heart and lung surgeon, has patented a scuba suit that would allow a human to breathe “liquid air”, a special solution that has been highly enriched with oxygen molecules.

Asthma Wellness Kit Encourages Exercise Asthma Wellness Kit Encourages Exercise (5)Jul-04-12 The Asthma Wellness Kit concept was developed as a way to encourage asthma sufferers to exercise by helping to distinguish an asthma attack from normal heavy breathing. The concept kit includes a device worn in that mouth that features an incorporated peak-flow meter and heat-exchanger. The heat-exchanger levels and adds moisture to the air as it is inhaled, and the peak-flow meter monitors the airways in order to send early warning of a coming attack. The Wellness Kit was designed with the idea of holistic asthma management in mind.
