University of Arizona (UA) researchers developed a wearable monitoring system that can send health data up to 15 miles without major infrastructure.
Most wearable devices currently use the Internet to transmit patient data to clinicians for aggregation and investigation, leaving individuals in remote or resource-constrained environments underserved.
The UA system uses a low-power wide area network, or LPWAN, that can send data 2,400 times the distance that Wi-Fi can, and 533 times that of Bluetooth.
The researchers also developed circuitry and an antenna that seamlessly integrates into the wearable, and said it can be three-dimensionally printed to provide a customized fit to individual users.
