Reports: Comcast is creating an in-home device to monitor health

According to CNBC, telecommunications company Comcast is working to create in-home devices that will monitor health. Comcast plans to pilot test the devices in 2019.
“The device will monitor people’s basic health metrics using ambient sensors, with a focus on whether someone is making frequent trips to the bathroom or spending more time than usual in bed,” CNBC reports. Comcast apparently is also building tools for detecting falls.
