Researchers at Arizona State University have developed a theoretical representation of a cyber-physical system and a model for data communication. The system is capable of collecting health data from sensors placed on the body and processing that data on a smart phone. The device can also be used to control equipment such as infusion pumps that deliver medication in controlled quantities and at prescribed intervals. The innovation is capable of making decisions regarding the patient’s health and sending alerts to health care providers when necessary. The device also stores and sends data for the use of health care professionals.
