So, this is good news for all of us, because Google is testing a cardiac sensor wristband that could become a game-changer in the health and medical industry. Google says the wristband would allow doctors to remotely monitor a patient's health, measuring electrical pulses of the heart and skin temperature. It even assesses environmental stressors like light and noise levels.

The company's hoping to include activity sensors that could help patients in the study of Parkinson's Disease or aid heart attack patients. The wristbands are just an experiment as of now, but Google says they think the technology is promising. If you're one of those who wants proof for everything, just Google it.
