Technological devices are imperative to everyday life now. Things like smart, sustainable thermostats — such as ecobee thermostats — can provide all kinds of economic and environmental benefits, paying for themselves in under two years by keeping energy use low when you're not home. During your quarantine, though you'll certainly be monitoring your home's temperature, there are plenty of other things to take care of.
Here are a few devices that could help you identify COVID-19 issues before they escalate:
Oxitone Wearable Vitals Monitor
This is the world's first FDA-cleared wearable wrist-sensor pulse oximetry monitor. This device has all kinds of medical benefits, including enabling physicians to improve following up with patients, improved efficiency of medical care, and happier patients. For high-risk patients, this device is perfect for prompt responses to upcoming emergencies — especially when it comes to COVID-19 symptoms.
Developed by Aidar Health, this device works like a breathalyzer and can capture a range of vitals including blood pressure, EKG, respiration rate, SpO2, respiratory flow-cycle morphology, and spirometry lung functions. Especially for those who are under recommended quarantine, this kind of objective data can be life-saving.
Clip-on Remote Temperature Monitor by Tahmo
This clip-on wireless body temperature monitor can track key vitals and transmit that data via Bluetooth technology to a user's smartphone. A patient can simply attach the device to their clothes during quarantine and upload any healthcare information to the cloud.
"With the latest COVID-19 outbreak, this device will minimize interaction with patients thus reducing the risk associated with coming into contact with infected patients," says Arif Quronfleh, CEO and founder of Tahmo.
Here are some additional tech gadgets that won't exactly save you, but should help you get through this quarantine:
- Smart Speaker System: Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance
- Laptop: Apple Macbook Air
- Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
- Tablet: Apple iPad Pro
- Smart TV: Sharp Aquos 8K TV
Whether you're just passing the time during this quarantine and are looking for a few cool gadgets to keep you entertained or you're hoping to utilize certain devices to monitor your health, technology is essential during these wild times. Stay safe out there!
