We are all aware of the amazing things that our smart phones are becoming capable of, but did you have any idea of the true scope of their capabilities?  One of the most recent and fastest growing segments of smart phone development goes hand in hand with the miniaturization of bio-medical monitoring equipment.

 

These developments will bring advanced bio-medical monitoring, previously only available in the hospital or with expensive hardware, into the homes of many.  The ability to monitor critical health information, and more importantly alert one’s physician to important fluctuations will potentially save lives and dramatically reduce health care costs.  The applications are endless, and the advantages priceless.
