Broadband used to regulate heart beat

The internet is harnessed for variety of purposes these days from surfing the web to CCTV and voice and video conferencing. News this week is that it’s now being used to monitor a remote controlled heart! Fire fighter Michael DiBernado suffers from an irregular heart beat and has recently been fitted with a device which monitors it’s pulse and sends results to his consultant over the internet. Any irregularities can then be picked up and acted upon quickly. It’s great to see the internet used for such positive reasons, personally I’m quite keen to have a chat with him and see if our conveniently titled PULSE product might be a fit, with backup of course, that’s a rather mission critical application he’s got there...
