Philips Healthdot is a medical device. It is a wearable biosensor, allowing health care professionals to monitor patients in hospital, but especially for out-of-hospital and during transitional care. It is a single use medical device which is placed on the lower left rib of a patient and continuously captures the patient´s heart rate, respiratory rate, posture and activity, all of which are transmitted to the hospital in a secure way. Philips Healthdot is one of the world´s first biosensors sending heart and respiratory rates to the hospital without the patient requiring a hub or mobile phone (it uses a built-in LoRa transmitter directly sending data to the cloud). This makes the system easy to use and the sent data reliable.
