BehindTheMedspeak: Hand-held EKG Monitor

Vdbvnv ncbv

Pretty awesome technology, considering that most EKG monitors occupy at least half a cubic foot of space.

And they sure don't cost $179 like this little puppy.

Just the thing for my fanny pack for when the industrial-strength iteration on my anesthesia machine goes on the fritz.

From the website:


Cleared by the FDA, this handheld cordless device lets you monitor your heart's rhythm without requiring a trip to the doctor's office.

The monitor uses four integrated sensors — not uncomfortable electrode cables — that provide an instantaneous EKG reading simply by holding the unit in one hand and pressing it against the palm of your other hand.

It displays an accurate EKG and heart rate on its 1-3/4" x 2-3/4" monochrome screen, along with an easy-to-interpret emoticon that indicates a normal or irregular heartbeat.

The lightweight, portable unit can monitor multiple users and its internal memory stores up to 200 30-second data records.

Data may be uploaded to a PC using the USB cable provided, and the included software for Windows 7 and Vista maintains a record of your heart's health over time.

Two AAA batteries (included) provide up to 400 readings.

Includes storage pouch.

5 1/2"L x 3-1/2" W x 3/4"H.

Weighs 4 oz.

Cabbage Chair

"Looks modishly high-end but is strictly D.I.Y.: You take an upright roll of tightly layered paper and peel back the sheets until you have the seat you want."


Designed by Oki Sato of Nendo in response to a challenge from Issey Miyake to create new products for the twenty-first century.


It can be seen in the show "Why Design Now?", the current edition of the National Design Triennial  at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City through January 9, 2011.

Interface hack eliminates iPad screen fingerprints

From CreativeApplications: "Although quite limited, this little experiment actually provides a very good insight into what is yet to come. This demos a physical knob [created by Adam Kumpf] used instead of a finger... as a simple rotary input interface to rotate a map."
