RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- There is an ever increasing number of families caring for an aged loved one living independently or in their own homes. Unfortunately, the need to be at work to pay the bills and the requirements of running a home and family usually makes maintaining care and supervision of that loved one challenging at times. Remote monitoring technology company eHeart Health Monitoring is building tools to help families in that very situation.
North Carolina based eHeart Health Monitoring (www.eheartmonitor.com) offers unique new solutions in the form of personal alert systems that continuously monitor the wearer's condition and location and shares it securely with family members. eHeart Health Monitoring's alert systems have been monitoring heart rate, activity level and GPS location as well as detecting falls and user alerts since late 2014. The company will add to those capabilities on August 12, 2016 when they roll out additional sensor support for continuous monitoring of heart rate variability, skin temperature, respiration rate, activity level, and posture. "We're very excited about our new sensor capabilities," says company president Eric Midgett. "This really rounds out our remote bio-monitoring capabilities," he adds.
In addition to tracking and storing biometrics data, eHeart Health Monitoring's personal alert systems send SMS notifications to family or caregivers you choose if the wearer presses a "Help" button or if a fall is detected. The systems can also be configured to send notifications if the wearer's heart rate reaches user defined high or low zones. Similar notifications for blood oxygen level, and a user defined "O2 target zone," can also be configured.
"In addition to our traditional applications for mobile and home based monitoring, we're also seeing some cross-over interest from exercise and sports enthusiasts who want to continuously monitor and record their numbers," states Midgett. eHeart Health Monitoring's systems allow users to collect sensor data continuously for up to ten days and export the data for later analysis in common computer applications.
Interestingly, the systems are based on consumer grade sports and athletic sensors instead of medical sensors. "That's a necessity…" says Midgett. "We need sensors that are accurate but it's also very important that they're rugged enough to handle the bumps and splashes of every day life that come with continuous use. Besides, our systems are purposefully built to help you understand whether your loved one is unusually inactive, too active, or if they're up and going about
their daily routine just like any other day. We aren't trying to diagnose or treat medical conditions…" he explains, "we're creating realtime data describing your loved one's condition, along with trends of that information, so that if a day comes when things aren't normal you'll be able to notice so you can proactively check on your loved one."
