THE Wellness Monitor is a health gadget that uses technology comparable to that used by NASA to monitor astronaut’s wellness in space. It tracks how healthy the body is throughout the day and night. It is equipped with an accelerometer that constantly monitors the duration and intensity of the body’s movements, including steps taken and calories burned.
Sleep cycles are calculated and sleep habits determined via a sensor. By wearing it on the wrist while sleeping, tiny tremors in the wrist determine length of time taken to fall asleep as well as any sleep interruptions.
Software automatically uploads the daily readings to the manufacturers website, producing timelines and graphs of physical activity and sleep cycles.
