CES 2019: Machine-washable Chronolife vest

CES products show how tech can improve life for seniors,  (McKnight's Long-Term Care News, 2/5/2019)
In terms of wearables, this year’s show also featured a machine washable device designed to keep tabs on the wearer’s vitals and anticipate potential medical emergencies.  [such as a heart attack]
Made out of cotton and Lycra, the Chronolife vest is meant to be worn daily and contains embedded sensors that record the electrical activity of a person’s heart, breathing, body temperature and general physical activity, including sudden movements, such as falls. 
This data is accessible to the user through an app, as well as to healthcare providers who can look out for any troubling signs. The vest doesn’t require an internet connection, and data is saved in a secure cloud service. 
Chronolife says the vest doesn’t require any charging and that its sensors don’t need to be removed in the wash.
Estimated retail price:  $228.  The company plans to sell it to researchers, insurance companies, and healthcare providers.
