Headphone-Shaped Vital Signs Monitors

A group of engineers and innovators over at the Eurac research institute in Bolzano, Italy have gone ahead and developed an innovative and high-tech vital signs monitor that has a form factor akin to a headphone, and can track people‘s vital signs through their ear.

The ‘MedSENS’ comprises a wired probe that can be inserted into the ear of a patient, and an external padding section that is placed atop the year and kept in place with an over-head strap. The probe is capable of monitoring heart rate, blood oxygen and body temperature, with the pertinent data displayed on a screen on the external-facing surface of the pad, and also transmissible to mobile devices.

This vital signs monitor is a welcome innovation due to the fact that it can be used in rescue situations where it may be difficult to monitor vital signs in the conventional fashion, such as when people are being rescued in adverse conditions or from fallen buildings.
