Blood Monitoring Implant that Tells Your Smartphone if You’re About to Have a Heart Attack

Technology and medical science has progressed to a level that one can have one's 'impending heart attack warning' directly communicated to one's smartphone through Bluetooth.

This has been made possible thanks to a long research which ended up in the development of  world’s smallest medical implant by a group of scientists at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland.

The device measures 14 millimeters only but can provide accurate data used to analyze levels of sugar in the blood, lactate and ATP. It is also capable of feeding data about the activity of the body as well as information about diseases like diabetes.

The implant will be induced into the part of the body that has few activities so its functions wouldn’t be disturbed. It is coated with an enzyme that reacts with blood-borne elements so that detectable signals can be sent to devices like smartphones.
