Can’t sleep, bed is watching me

BBC NEWS | Health | Heart-check beds to be developed:

The bed would include, not only an electronic weight scale and blood pressure monitor, but also sensors which measure heart rate, breathing rate and body movement while sleeping. In addition, the patient could wear a vest with woven-in electrodes to provide a full electro-cardiogram reading.

This is mostly for the picture of the vest, but eek. I’ve done sleep labs, and I can’t think of a quicker way to make a lot of patients sicker than hooking them into one of these things when they’re trying to get some rest.
