Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have given a boost to telemedicine proponents with the publication of a new study that highlights smartphones' efficacy and quality in capturing medical images to evaluate stroke patients.  The study, published in the September issue of Stroke is the first to test the effectiveness of smartphone teleradiology applications in a real-world telestroke network, according to Mayo Clinic officials.

Ford is developing a car seat capable of monitoring drivers’ ECG to provide real-time health information and alerts of imminent cardiovascular issues such as a heart attack or arrhythmias.

My comment=> The technology is evolving rapidly.  How this will compete with or integrate with mobile devices and wearable monitoring devices remains to be seen.  The auto industry has had reasonable commercial success integrateing technology for entertainement purposes and also new safety technologies.  This health monitoring approach seems like a commercial gimmick, but might help sell cars.  i can envision the marketing of the speeding car with tachometer and heart rate monitor displayed side by side.
