Vital biometrics—the measurement of a user’s internal body functions, like heart rate, ECG and blood oxygen level—play a special role in Mobile ID. While they have traditionally been the stuff of fitness tech for people who like to micromanage their jogging, recent innovations have allowed for these kinds of biometrics to flood into the healthcare and authentication markets.
Combined with wearable sensors and secure connection technology, vital biometrics are enabling the telehealth movement, which allows medical patients to receive round the clock medical care in the comfort of their home, freeing up hospital space while receiving comprehensive care.
