Hi Alexander i'm really interested about these devices because of my medical profession. The future is electronic stuff used to solve, control, monitor health problems.
These devices should be not invasive and give exact values.
The wifi transmission of vital data , to mobile stuff is really important but first comes a stable , meter-device.
Today i can see thousand of NOT reliable home blood pressure monitors or thermometers (ear thermometer suffering of position in the ear , front face meter not stable ecc. ecc.)
So first come clinical reliable data then its transmission , monitoring and backing-up.
Think what a blockbuster is a device that monitors the daily absumption of tablets, pills, suppositories, at the right time, the right daily frequence. and that could send the warning to the pharmacist that is the front-clinical professional for the patient.
We could call him asking, are you ok? did you forge the pill? or simply send a reminder by sms.
This needs a big job to create good somministration boxes that are prepared by the caregiver : pharmacist, paramedic people
They already exist http://www.epill.com/medsmartplus.html but could have more features and integration with the web, data transmission etc.
Sorry for the lenght of my message :)

There are commercial wireless scales on the market with an online connection to a website portal ... one is based on WiFi and getting straight into the WiFi / ADSL modem and the other one is using their own 433MHz protocol to send it from the scale to a plug in on one of the router ports.

Based on the instruction movie you may consider building it by yourself ... you can get small Z-wave building modules .....

Telemedicin: a lot of projects are going on with online health monitoring - collecting medical data from the home including medicin intake...... so far no major implementation and having experimental status ... handicap cost and the required structure of organisation ...
