A health check chair
Checking health signs such as blood pressure, temperature and mobility usually involves multiple tests and can be time-consuming. A chair developed by Sharp is equipped with multiple sensors that can measure a user’s vital signs all at once and save the data to the cloud for physicians to reference. Sharp designed the chair for patients to use at home and is considering adding a videoconferencing system so patients can visit with physicians remotely.
“Rather than people who are ill going to the doctor, our idea is for healthy people to think about how to stay healthy, prepare for any emergencies and improve their day-to-day lifestyle,” a spokesman said way back in 2013.
