Governor presents UH researcher with grant for cardiac device
Date:10/8/2010

e comfort of a person's own home, putting some control into the hands of patients and giving doctors real-time information on their conditions for better evaluation and treatment. Driven by biosensors, it consists of a bathroom scale attached to handlebars that monitor vitals through vessels in the hands via biosensor strips and a pulse monitor. The device is designed for usability in an elderly population, with the base being reinforced and handles large enough for a person to support themselves.

The device is first being used for the wireless management of congestive heart failure, with hopes of expanding on the basic system to monitor asthma and metabolic syndrome, allowing patients to participate more actively in their own chronic disease care. Tracking output of blood from the heart, the Blue Scale reads heart rate, fluid retention and cardiac output in just 15 seconds. The information the device collects on a daily basis is transferred via Wi-Fi network to the doctor's office for continuous, real-time monitoring and is reflected back to the patient in a user-friendly manner. The developers of Blue Scale say it's a life-saving tool that puts power back in the hands of patients, which is a top priority of the Abramson Center.

"Our development of this low-cost, easy-to-use monitoring device will make personalized health care much more accessible," said Dacso, who is also the John S. Dunn Senior Research Chair in General Internal Medicine at TMHRI. "This technology is designed to allow people with chronic illnesses to fine-tune their health, thus avoiding preventable deterioration that may result in emergency care. It's much easier on the patient and provides them with higher quality and very personal care, since markers for chronic disease are measured every day, rather than only during physician visits or crises. When caught earlier, symptoms can be managed more easily and improve quality of life."
