No Doctor Visits

How would you like if your doctor could monitor your health from home?
The federal communications commission says it plans to allocate spectrum bandwidth for body sensors that would monitor a patient's vital signs wirelessly.
The idea is that doctors could monitor patient's vital signs at home or in a hospital through low-cost wearable sensors that are attached to the patient's body.
F-c-c officials say the amount of radiation involved with these devices is so low that they would pose no health risks.
They estimate that disposable wireless sensors could save about 2-thousand to 12-thousand dollars a patient.
The commission is scheduled to vote on the plan next week.
