Bodyweight monitoring for heart or kidney disease

A deterioration in the condition of a patient with heart or kidney disease is often signaled by sudden weight gain. Thus daily monitoring of body weight can be an effective way of monitoring the disease.

The Medscale GPRS/GSM 2.1 offers seamless monitoring of patient weight. The doctor pre-defines weight gain metrics for each patient and is notified immediately if these are triggered. The doctor can intervene immediately and thus prevent more serious hospital admissions.
