Lenovo and Vital USA today announced the Vital Moto Mod, a modular attachment for the Moto Z line of smartphones that can measure a range of health stats. Vital USA says the Vital Modo Mod can monitor heart rate, respiratory rate, pulse oximetry, non-contact body temperature, and blood pressure. The Mod works with the Vital App, a HIPAA-compliant application, to parse the data and create a complete health picture. The mod includes a finger cuff with an inflatable bladder along with other sensors to make the measurements. Vital USA says the measurements take about three to five minutes to complete, and they are then stored in the app where they can be shared and/or analyzed. The company claims all five measurements are made as accurately as they might be with dedicated medical equipment. Pricing and availability were not immediately disclosed.

This is awesome

My daughter has some pretty serious medical problems and having this anywhere would be a god send. Any word on if for some reason it would need a data connection to work? Thinking about just buying a z and this mod simply for that and not a phone.

The Power of the Mods

This looks to be a very useful personal health moto mod. I guess someone could make something similar with bluetooth or USB but having it as one device is elegant and could be very useful in certain setups.

It also should help keep older moto Z phones still relevant and retain their value.
