    Good technology, I hope insurance pays for some of this. I don't think Medicare will be on board. But I sure am. If I can afford it, I will.
i HAVE AN APP ON MY SMARTPHONE THAT TAKES MY PULSE. It is good for when I am doing relaxation, to see if my heartrate slows down. So many apps, so little time......

    I can't wait. That is absolutely amazing. Looks like the biggest application would be the doctor having you do the screening right then on his spartphone, saving EVERYONE a LOT of money.

The only downside as I see it is lab technicians will become obsolete as more app use becomes more widespread.

Don't know if I like the idea of injecting a transmitter into my bloodstream. It might tickle as it passes certain areas!! ; )

    This is great for those who are technologically astute.

    Yes, but Starr, with what is coming for "healthcare" this may mean you can afford things that otherwise would be so terribly expensive. Some of this would most likely be prescribed by your Dr. and might be covered and might also be able to be applied instead of being turned down for treatment. I agree, $ do make a huge difference but this may even help those of us without those $, at least some. Time will tell, and we will pray it does.

    This will be emoticon for folks who can AFFORD it. Maybe 15 or 20 years from now when the price goes down, if it goes down, the average person will be able to take advantage of such a wonderful concept such as this. I know that I am being a downer, but we all know that the folks who are well off money wise are the ones who benefit from the "good" stuff.
