For many years, Bluetooth wireless technology has been relegated to the world of hands-free mobile headsets. However, this wireless protocol has found a new home in miniature integrated medical devices. These devices can be worn, carried or even swallowed by patients. Some novel wireless medical devices that have emerged in recent years include bandanas that record epilepsy-related brain waves, body bands that monitor a patient's cardiovascular health and underwear that monitor a patient's vital signs. All of these technologies are made possible by Bluetooth wireless technology.
