The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission conducted the workshop at KLCC on 24th August 2013. Our Prime Minister opened the exhibition. There were 8 winners of the BEE (Broadband Empowered Entrepreneur) awards worth RM 5,000.00 each.

Two products caught my attention at the exhibition.
1. Telehealth for all at www.u2Doc.com . This portal allows anyone in the world to participate in a medical consultation with a doctor. A patient can make an appointment, pay the fees and have a telemedicine consultation. Project just started 2 months ago. There are also gadgets for monitoring: BP, weight, peak flow, blood glucose, ECG, pulse oximetry.
2. Metria is a wearable sensor which can record sleep pattern, physical activity (number of steps, METs, calories burnt). The device is to be worn for a week. Data is downloaded to a computer via a micro USB connection. This device is suitable for lifestyle management, heatlh and wellness assessment, weight management and fitness.
