Abstract

See full text

A body-held monitoring device monitors a physical condition and/or a performance condition. A plurality of transducers (3-6) each measure various quantities indicating a physical condition and/or a performance condition. The plurality of transducers includes a multiple detector transducer (4-6) designed by a film technique. The transducers are monitored by means of a microprocessor (9) that provides information indicating the physical condition and/or performance condition of a monitored person in such a manner that a comparison of a plurality of different transducer signals is used to compensate for an anomaly from an individual transducer. A body-held transducer unit (1) has a skin-contacting surface carrying at least some of the transducers, and a wrist-held display and detector unit (2) displays the information indicating a physical condition and/or performance condition by means of a display and/or a sound signal.
