Smartron Tband Review

New lifestyles create new medical problems which require constant monitoring. Sticking a thermometer under a child’s tongue is something our grandparents have done for ages. Monitoring blood pressure and pulse rate is a more recent necessity and lakhs of sufferers from chronic hypertension have learned to use a cuff or wrist-based electronic BP apparatus, thus avoiding a visit to a clinic. Diabetes is now so widely prevalent that home glucometers sell in lakhs —and provide at least, a rough guide one’s blood sugar levels. ffers users the ability to capture their ECG — as well as BP and heart rate. You may ask: How can an ECG which conventionally measures with 12 leads squeezed into a tiny watch sized device with no leads. The answer is advancing technology which uses a tiny bio sensor connected to three electrodes on the device, Similarly, the tband, uses an optical sensor, to measure the heart rate. BP is measured by combining the data provided by the ECG and heart rate sensors using what is called Pulse Wave Transit Time (PWTT) and unlike cuff-type instruments it doesn’t put a stress on the heart. A built in 100mAh battery ( which can be charged, using the magnetic charging dock provided) keeps the device going for 2-3 days and an OLED display lets you toggle through the various functions. Like most smart wrist wearables the tband also tracks activity, monitors sleep, measures distance covered, calories burnt…. but these seem almost mundane compared to the trishul of clinical measurements it can perform. Squeezing all this functionality into such a tiny device, was a huge technology challenge and involved months of development by Smartron engineers who also harnessed research at some leading academic centres abroad
