More than just a Smartphone…It’ll Save Lives

Recently I posted about my new Acer Ferrari Liquid E Smartphone. After initially causing anger, I can now say that my Acer Ferrari Liquid E Smartphone is indeed a worldly thing that makes life a little better. It makes checking my emails more convenient, plus whenever I’m in a public place and needs to say my mantra, I don’t have to take out my mala, but, instead I can just use a specific free downloadable application called Meditation Tracker which is available for free in Android Market.

However, it did occur to me that given there’s a growing awareness, consciousness, and interest about health, there are very few iTunes and Android Market applications that’s health related. The few that’s in the online stores are limited to proper diet and exercise instructions or guide. But I really haven’t seen anything that can actually save lives right when you need it.

So I’m really happy when I came across this online article about a new application of a Smartphone that may save lives.

Basically, you touch a button, and it sends your pulse to a 24/7 medical center. If you’re not in any immediate danger, what it’ll do is send you an sms, but if you’re in serious condition and is in a health emergency, you’ll receive a call to inform you that ‘an ambulance is on its way’.

The technology was invented in Singapore. So I really hope that we can have that here in the Philippines soon. Read the full article here.


About jefftan168

Numbers does not rule my life. But if there’s a number that may play a big influence in my life that is 168. You see, about six months ago, when I went into a gym and had a weigh in and body mass index reading, I found out that I was already type 2 obese, and if I’m not mistaken there are only 3 types. In fact, I need to shed about 43% of my total body weight. I’m 5’5 and my ideal weight would be 165lbs, but according to my trainer since I’ve already accumulated so much skin by stretching it too much because of my fats it’s ok to just settle with 168lbs to 170lbs. (Internal monologue at that time was 5lbs of skin!) That’s’ the reason why I’m calling this blog Project 168 because that’s my ultimate weight goal. However, being a Chinese Buddhist and a believer of Feng Shui, 168 is also considered as a celestial number that is suppose to be really lucky. Thus Project 168 also refers to my quest to have a good happy life and to be a good student of Chinese Buddhism. A word of caution though, growing up, my parents firmly believed that the next super language is not English but Chinese. Thus special focus was given for me to learn Mandarin, in fact, I was send to Taiwan on summers to further learn the language. The big disadvantage is that I’ve such a poor commando of the English language that surely you’ll see some grammatical errors in every post. However, I still decided to write this blog in English to be able to share this with people who are also trying to lose weight and who are like me are in a quest to constantly live a good life. This blog is not me talking to the world but its me sharing my experience to whoever would want to read this so that it might help them, and more important than that people might want to share with me also their experience that it might help in my quest to lose weight and also to constantly have a good life.
