The Dynosensor T2000 is meant to accurately monitor the following health parameters in real time — and to store the data for you, and share the data with health care professionals of your choice:
Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
Heart Rate, Heart Rhythm, Heart Variability, “QRS” Complex Wave
Blood Oxygen (SpO2), Hemoglobin (SpHb), Carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO), Methemoglobin (SpMet)
Pulmonary Plethysmography (PPM)
Respiration Rate, Breathing Volume, and Breathing Efficiency
Core Body Temperature
Oral Temperature, Fever, Hyperthermia, and Hypothermia
Blood Pressure Change
Arterial Pressure, Variation of Systolic and Diastolic Parameters
Weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), Body Fat Index (BFI)
Fluid Change, Euhydration, Hypohydration, and Hyperhydration
Steps, Poster Position (Standing, Walking, Running), and Fall
Active vs. Non-Active State, Snoring, Sleep Pattern
With the above information monitored in real time, one could perform a mini-stress EKG, a mini-PFT, mini-sleep study, test for hypertension, anemia, carbon monoxide poisoning, hypoxemia, hypothermia, hyperthermia, obesity, sleep apnea, dehydration, movement disorder, fall detection, detect & track infections, and more — in real time. The data is analysed by the software included, stored in the cloud and sent to a practitioner of your choice.
This is still a far cry from a Star Trek Tricorder, but it is a modern-day instantiation of a good idea, which is better than nothing. Better versions will be coming soon.
Ideally, infants would have a tricorder-like implant placed at birth (or before), allowing an almost instant detection of any deviation from normal health parameters — providing high quality data for the person’s lifetime.
Dynosense Corp will be marketing devices such as the one described above, in China. Presumably, it will not belong before Chinese rip-off devices are available at much lower prices.
When combined with advanced blood testing and other sensors described in articles below, such a real-time wearable set of sensors could provide remotely located medical teams with important real-time health data on virtually anyone.
Companies such as Theranos are paving the way for people to obtain and control their own health information — without having to go through government licensed intermediaries.
The next step is instant, real-time access to health data using wearable or implanted sensors — combined with “intelligent” diagnostic software and a range of treatment options wherever you are.

The information at the above links will only give you a hint of what is coming.
Massive, exorbitant, unwieldy bureaucracies such as “Obamacare” are throwbacks to dinosaur-era medicine. Monolithic government bureaucratic solutions are for the Idiocracies of the world. Isn’t it time to outgrow that sort of thing — and quickly?
Disruptive changes are coming to medicine, law, housing, transportation, food, energy, drugs, medical devices, self-defence, and practically every sector of modern economies. Rather than being crushed by the coming waves of disruptive technologies, wouldn’t it be better to ride the waves?
As Peter Diamandis says, “The best way to predict the future is to invent it yourself.”
