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.
