When my son was four years old he developed a medical condition that required surgery and there was no way for my wife and I to monitor his health before surgery or into his recovery. We walked into our sons room every morning not knowing what we would find...this was, by far, the scariest time of our lives.
This entire episode led me to search for a solution that would allow me to monitor his health without attaching him to something (not likely to stay on a 4 year old :-) ). I looked into piezo, radar and camera based sensors and found serious faults with all of them. When I couldn't find a useful solution I made it my mission to bring the world's best non-contact vital sign monitor to market.
