Teddy The Guardian can measure wellness stats and send them to parents' mobile devices via Bluetooth.

Croatia-based company IDerma has come out with a stuffed teddy bear that does more than act as a kids' cute and fluffy friend.

Teddy The Guardian is a stuffed bear fitted with sensors that can measure a child's heart rate, body temperature, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. The modified toy can then send this health information to parents' mobile devices via Bluetooth.

Teddy The Guardian obtains the data when the child puts his or her finger on its paw or when Teddy's paw is placed on the child's forehead. The health data can be used by help doctors when the child become's ill. Teddy is also a good way for parents to monitor their child's health.
