Cryonicists who live alone face the risk of sudden death, followed by
prolonged ischemia, before they are discovered.  The solution to this problem
would be a heart monitor, which would signal cardiac arrest to an automatic
dialer. Compliance requires the monitor be no more cumbersome than a bracelet.
The false alarm rate must be very low or it will be ignored by the caretaker
and the patient will refuse to use the alarm.  The device must distinguish
between being taken off and sudden death. 

I will pay $500 plus parts cost for a working model which demonstrates all
of the above features.  Anyone who will add to the seed money, or who wants to
submit a design, or who has the skill to build someone else's design, may
contact me by e-mail, or phone me at 415-604-5720.
