Digital mobile sensors can save your life, and reduce healthcare costs

This is a very interesting and informative 17-minute video that gives an overview of some of the wireless medical sensing devices that are available to consumers today. The speaker (Eric Topol) gives statistics on chronic diseases (diabetes, heart failure, sleep apnea), and their cost impact in money and quality of life. He cites Wired magazine articles that show the consumer acceptance of continuous monitoring of physiological processes.

Please take the 17 minutes to view this video.
