HEALTH MONITORING BASED ON LOCATION

Health monitoring has experienced a lot of breakthroughs in recent years. It is not uncommon to see people wearing wristbands monitoring everything from their heart rate to the number of footsteps taken in one day. In our patented solution, the health monitoring system in heart rate, steps taken, etc. reacts based on dynamic thresholds. For example, one threshold depends on the user’s activity. By accompanying the user’s health information to her real-time activity, our patented technology can more accurately decide the health conditions for notification. To illustrate, there is a difference between the user with an increased heart rate running compared to the user sitting. In another example, the threshold depends on the user’s location. Again, there is a difference between the user with an increased heart rate in a gym compared to at home. Pairing the user’s health information with her activity or locations improve the current health monitoring field, allowing better notifications to be received by authorized users. Then more appropriate actions can be taken by the user or a health care provider if necessary.
