Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 11.29.50 AMNearly 88,000 people die each year from alcohol-related deaths, making this the fourth leading “preventable” cause of death in the United States.

Recovery programs are now making use of remote medical monitoring; the adage “longer monitored, longer sober” here applies.

It’s no surprise that the FDA has cleared a remote monitoring device for managing patients. Soberlink connects with real-time blood alcohol content (BAC) testing. The device recognizes your face, analyzes your breath’s alcohol content, and wirelessly sends the results.

Wait! News flash! – a flexible, wearable, temporary tattoo can measure blood alcohol levels! Engineers at the University of California, San Diego came up with this simple sensor that measures through the skin. This concept is known and used – a flexible, electronic circuit board connects to the tattoo by a magnet and communicates via Bluetooth.

Police stops for alcohol checks will change very soon!
