It sends 24/7 feedback on patients' vital signs and overall health to doctors or nurses. The hope is that VitalPatch will help reduce hos- pital readmissions by detecting signs of infection or other complica- tions until you can see patients for a follow-up appointment. The light- weight, wireless patch continuously monitors and records single-lead ECG, heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, skin tempera- ture, posture, step count and fall detection with clinical accuracy, says the company. vitalconnect.com
