Dan Bishop’s Vitals monitoring system takes the medical bracelet to a new level. Designed to ease up on the tedious workload that taking vital signs involves, the concept medical wristband can monitor the wearer’s temperature, pulse and blood pressure. First, medical staff will take a manual reading to provide a baseline. For future readings, though, all the patient has to do is swipe the Vitals’ monitor over his or her forehead to take their temperature, which signals it to start reading pulse an blood pressure, too.

All the data is relayed wirelessly to a digital “chart,” logging all the vitals of the patient, who gets the added bonus of wearing a stylin’ medical gadget. We wouldn’t mind seeing Bishop’s Vitals monitoring system come to hospitals, but it would be extra fun if the wrist pulse monitor makes the same doot-doot-doot sound as the bigger ones.
