"yes, you'd need the WiFi or phone signal the work, the same as you would if you want to use your mobile phone. Doubtless, there are areas that are dead zones. However, the shirt will still track a person much more accurately than just a few minutes on an ECG machine would. "

Ariella, thanks for this clarification. So I understood that even in dead zones, it may continue with the monitoring process and transmitted over wifi, when signals are available.

"That may be done by the use of a battery. A lithium or other related battery may be used, but then its has to be a power source that allows mobility."

Adeniji, If it's an in house they can use direct plug in power system. I mean without the need of a battery.

"The business might not be bad as long as they are solving a problem"

Adeniji, its al depends upon convenience of peoples. Such medical diagnostic centers are there in all most all hospitals and every corner of the street. But peoples won't like to walk in to such centers; they need to be monitored by in-house on their own convenience and that's the business point.

"not at all! That's the idea; it's designed for active people. The promotional video shows them walking and biking outside. "

Ariella, good and its better to have atleast in house mobility. Otherwise peoples may feel that they are bedridden patients.

" they can be transmitting signals for a whole day rather than just the snapshot read of a few minutes that one gets from being strapped to a machine at an appointed time."

Ariella, for moving peoples, what about the power requirements for the monitoring and sending data cross the nearby wifi receiving stations.

"not at all! That's the idea; it's designed for active people. The promotional video shows them walking and biking outside. Really, that is not just a matter of convenience but of much better recording and safety, as they can be transmitting signals for a whole day rather than just the snapshot read of a few minutes that one gets from being strapped to a machine at an appointed time."

Ariella, for moving peoples how this data transfer can happen; they have to be in the vicinity of wifi range.

@Adenji It does send signals that way. The main list of features shows:
  • Personal smartphone alerts (Bluetooth)
  • Remote monitoring via Cloud and/or WiFi

The shirt merely has to send the signals. Analysis in real time is handled by the software in the :powerful monitor-and-alert unit unobtrusively located in the shirt's side pocket constantly analyzing actual ECG signals in real-time for cardiac events such as arrhythmias & ischemia automatically generating a local alert." You can visit personal-healthwatch.com to learn more about the technology
