GumPack wearable vitals monitor designed by Kansas State University student


There are lots of vitals monitoring kits on the market, but only one that fits in the palm of your hand. Named for its diminutive size, the Gumpack was designed by an inventive Kansas State University student. And who knows America isn’t creating new stuff nowadays?!

This multi-sensor monitoring device that fits in the palm of your hand. That’s how small it is. It relays your vital stats to the doctor of your choice via the Internet. It even features a built-in camera and microphone for record keeping purposes. The Gumpack also has WiFi capabilities and a long-living battery. Oh yeah, there’s also medical sensors built in as well. An ECG and a reflectance pulse oximeter to start.

This miniature life saver is still in the concept stages, so don’t go to your local Radio Shack looking for it just yet.
