If you’re not too crazy about visiting doctors or hospitals, you may want to pay attention to this concept health care chair developed by Sharp.
The Japanese electronics company developed a health care support chair that can measure the user’s blood pressure, pulse, temperature, body motion, and other vital signs. The concept chair records the data and stores them in the cloud. This creates a possibility for physicians to examine a patient without actually needing to meet the patient in person.
The concept chair consists of a recliner in a circular frame and three display screens. The sensors that take the health measurements are integrated in the chair itself and its armrests. The system also allows for videoconferencing with a doctor if the user needs to consult with one in real-time.
The chair was presented at CEATEC 2013 in Japan.
