That includes slippers. Called “smart slippers,” they have pressure sensors embedded in their soles to transmit foot movement data over AT&T’s network. If something is amiss in an elderly patient’s gait or there is a fall, the device will alert a doctor via e-mail or text message. The slippers are undergoing clinical trials and may be available as early as next year.
