Post-Operative Monitoring Kit

Gentag has developed the first cell phone-based post-operative orthopedic surgery monitoring kit. The kit includes a temperature and pressure measuring chip which is able to communicate with near field communication (NFC) equipped cell phones. A disposable “smart” skin patch is placed on the post-operative patient, which can communicate with the cell phone to detect swelling and monitor for bed sores or pressure changes.
