Mobile – Connected – Healthy
Gertrud S. felt like normal on this cloudy winter morning. Only that strange feeling in the pit of her stomach that would not go away after clearing the snow bothered her a little bit.
Although Gertrud S. diligently took care of herself since her heart attack last year, she did not pay much attention to the feeling and blamed her indisposition on the fact that she had not eaten anything for breakfast. While she was sorting laundry into the washing machine, the tele-medical support center already started receiving her emergency information.
Via her body central unit (BCU), the wireless communication sensors attached to the body of Gertrud S. had signaled a significant deterioration of her health status. After the BCU had provided detailed emergency information, the doctor at service was able to initiate further measures based on ECG, pulse and oxygen saturation as well as on consultation by phone. Gertrud S.´ second heart attack had been prevented.
