I work for a company called ICEdot. We created a wearable, helmet-mounted crash sensor that detects severe impacts and notifies your emergency contacts via SMS, email or phone call. We're running an Indiegogo campaign right now to help cover the costs of sensor production. Check it out at http://www.indiegogo.com/icedo...

It's exciting to see new products being launched in the market for monitoring and early detection. Wearable medical devices will only help us gain faster insight to conditions as they arise and lead to better medicine. It'll be nice to see how this progresses as circuits become smaller and devices become cheaper/more available to the masses.

It seems to me that devices like the Metria sensor can go a long way in prevention of many illnesses. I can imagine a physician maintaining a database of info sent by his or her patients from the Metria device to look for patterns or symptoms to make better diagnoses and improve treatment.

What we need to know is what hubs will work with the devices. The hub will transmit the info to the doctor/hospital and there is no real "standard" yet for sending & receiving the data. In some cases you buy a hub with the wearable device. We should only need one hub but until the standards are established it is going to get messy.
