A company is looking for volunteers to try a new monitoring system that could save those with a risk of heart failure.
Heartfelt Technologies has developed a range of 3D cameras that are able to monitor the condition of patients in their home.
Called the HF-1 heart failure monitoring device, it works using a camera that automatically captures information from a patient’s lower leg or foot whenever they walk past it.
The Cambridge-based company has aimed the system at patients who do not adhere to medical advice and tell their doctors when they have an issue such has breathlessness or weigh themselves regularly.
This information is sent to the relevant group via the Internet Cloud.
The hope is that this will save doctors time by received medical information instantly, save patients hospital visits and possibly save a lives.
