How It Works

Coupled with a compatible mobile application, the HealthPatch biosensor is your solution to tracking your health and wellness or that of a loved one. The HealthPatch can be used by athletes training for a major competition, by people simply trying improve overall health or by aging consumers requiring specialized care. Not only can you view your summarized data, but real-time notifications can be sent to you or a family member if pre-set thresholds for these health indicators are dipped below or surpassed.


The HealthPatch biosensor has two components: the reusable sensor module and the disposable patch. 

The HealthPatch detects the following biometric measurements:

  • Heart Rate
  • Heart Rate Variability
  • Respiratory Rate
  • Skin Temperature
  • Body Posture including Fall Detection/Severity
  • Steps
  • Stress

Please note: the features set available to you will depend on your chosen compatible application.


Vital Connect partners with leading mobile health and wellness application providers who can build innovative enterprise- and consumer-grade apps on the Vital Connect biosensor platform. The HealthPatch features and capabilities available to you will depend on which application you choose to download.
