DIY Telemedicine for at home monitoring

I think there's giant market for DIY wireless healthcare monitoring @ home. 
Call it a Nokia Sports Tracker framework, with additional health monitoring functions and professional follow up.
People with broadband routers can buy devices (fitness, weighing scale, heart monitor, glucose meters, accelerometers, ...) that interconnect with the router via Wi-Fi.
Companies can offer:
  • non-expensive devices that are easy to use and install
  • services/platforms for interpretation of the data (and sharing?)
  • guidance/advice for end-users
  • alarm-procedures/interventions
Simplicity = key

What effect will this have on government spending?

Webcam Software said...

Webcam home monitoring is much cheaper than using a professional home security set-up, that could set you back by many hundred dollars. Once you have your webcams in place, a webcam software is extremely affordable and what's best, is that some of them like GotoCamera even offer this service for free.
