Mobiles to check patients' health

Mobiles to check patients' health: "A mobile phone that gives its owner a health check is being developed by experts at Leeds University. The device can be used to check vital signs, glucose and blood oxygen levels. The results are then sent straight to a remote computer where a nurse or doctor can analyse them and contact the patient if anything is wrong. The university said the phone would mean patients at risk could avoid making frequent trips to their GP for routine checks."
