  • Patent number: 4033336
    Abstract: A system for sensing and recording items of medical information relating to the human body includes a plurality of sensing devices responsive to various parameters associated with the human body for producing data signals determined by the sensed parameters, a code generator for producing different code signals indicative of the various parameters to be sensed, and a recorder for recording the code signals and data signals in a predetermined relationship on a recording medium. The system is embodied as an insurance data collection system for automatically measuring and recording such characteristics of the human body as height, weight, girth (waist and chest expansion), blood pressure and electrocardiogram test results on a magnetic tape cassette. In addition, an input arrangement is provided to allow the results of an independent test, e.g., a urine examination, to be recorded on the cassette.
