Proteus Raisin Personal Health Monitor Clears FDA, Works With iPhone

Each day more and more apps are coming around for the iPhone that add the ability to do new things to the device. One of the latest offerings is called the Proteus wireless Raisin personal health monitor and the device has just been cleared by the FDA.

Exactly how the Raisin came by that name is a mystery considering from the images it looks nothing like a raisin and the sensor seems to be very large. The sensor can capture data like heart rate, physical activity, body position, and other logged events.

The data can then be sent via Bluetooth to devices like the iPhone or a computer for merging with mHealth applications. The sensor sticks to the skin of the user with an adhesive bandage. Pricing and availability of the Raisin Personal Monitor is unknown.
