This project was made for the 2009 Braunprize competition. It consists of an electronic bracelet that measures a person’s vital signs. It monitors the health of the patient remotely and in real time, so that they can be released from the hospital earlier. By using Bluetooth technology, it sends alarms to a computer and then, through the Internet, to a relative or doctor’s mobile phone in case of emergency.

The concept tries to create a sense of freedom for the user despite any medical conditions they may experience, giving them a chance to lead a normal life after a hospital stay without fear of what may happen. It is an attempt at giving a stronger feel of security and protection as long as the bracelet is worn.
This diagram explains the flow of information from the bracelet to the computer and then, via Internet, to the patient's relatives and doctor and local emergency services.
