Reston, VA (Vocus) October 14, 2010
AFrame Digital innovators of a novel, non-intrusive wireless heart rate sensor will be speaking about issues concerning senior care and mobility and the company’s technology solutions at several conferences across the nation.
The AFrame Digital personal health monitor is a non-intrusive wrist monitor, similar to a sports watch that represents the next generation in senior health care technology. The personal health monitor records a user’s activity, impacts and critical health data including weight, blood pressure, pulse and oxygenation levels. Changes in any one of these bodily functions from their own personal baselines can signal the need for immediate care. Additionally, concerned family members can be sent alerts and updates.
The sensor weighs a fraction of an ounce and can be packaged as either a fashion accessory or integrated with occupational safety accessories. The sensor’s design as a functional wristwatch removes the medical stigma for the user.
AFrame Digital will be presenting at the following conferences and invites interested individuals to attend to speak with company scientists and to learn more about its technology.
- October 19-20: Virginia Assisted Living Association VALA Annual Conference, Virginia Beach, VA
- October 26-28: Sprint Developers Conference, Santa Clara, CA
- October 27-29: Mid-Atlantic Venture Association (MAVA) - Mid-Atlantic Bio Conference, Bethesda, MD
- November 1-4: American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging Conference, Los Angeles, CA
- November 8-10: mHealth Summit in Washington, DC
