In the 2015 movie “Mission: Impossible—RogueNation”, one of the most thrilling scene is when Ethan Hunt holds his breathfor minutes to replace the chip underwater. The wristband Hunt wears allows his partner to monitor his vital signs.
Similarly, in “Jurassic World”, people in the control room can also monitor the vital signs of the rescuers. This kind of technology, while seemingly impossible, is actually appearing in our daily lives.
The WooTop is a portable ECG monitor. With an increasing number of people suffering from cardiovascular diseases these years, this kind of product is needed to monitor the health condition of patients in real time.
The WooTop is a small patch stuck onto the patient’s chest, allowing for real-time monitoring of one’s health condition. It can be linked to an app, so that users can observe their health index on their mobile phone. The patch is able to pick up heart signals ranging from 0.05Hzto 150Hz and detect 12 types of heart rhythm abnormalities.
The WooTop is not only small and portable but also comfortable. Its appearance was designed under the concept of combining health and fashion. It has a charger case resembling a Bottega Veneta handbag. The users can simply put the patch in the charger case and the charging will automatically begin. The real-time monitoring can last for 72 hours on a single charge. The wireless design of the charger and the backup stickers inside are also convenient and aesthetic.
An electro-cardioscanner like this brings health, ease and reassurance to patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases.The artistic and functional design of the WooTop Patch made it the 2015 ChinaGood Design gold winner.
