    Name: Health Link
    Description: Mainly used in mining colonies or places with otherwise less than ideal working conditions, health link is series of cybernetic implants that work together to measure the over all health of the person with said implants. Their over all health is represented by a color with green being healthy, yellow being injured or otherwise at less than baseline and red being near death and is shown with a strip of colored light on their back.
    Abilities:
    • Can show a workers overall health at a glance, saving managers and supervisors the trouble of needing to call a doctor for what might not be emergencies.
    • Has inbuilt communicators so all those with a Health Link can communicate between one another.
    • Can be accessed via the implants them self so that people with proper clearance can see the specific details of what is wrong with the workers health.

    Limitations:
    • Can only identify the limited range of sicknesses that are publicly known and well studied. This means that while it can detect bacteria and the like, it can sometimes be misleading on what the problem actually is.
    • Communicators have a limited range of about two miles and anywhere after that is unintelligible scrambled words.
    • It's usually cheap production costs mean that false readings aren't uncommon.
    • EMPs will ruin the internal implants and render the system unusable until replaced.

    How does it work: Through a series of cybernetic implants, Health Link measures the users vitals signs and provides a color to indicate the health of the user with a strip of colored light on their back. The system is less invasive than you'd think, being used as a low cost alternative to proper health care screenings in places that can't afford or don't want to pay for such things.

    Flavor text: It was created when many a high ranking executive was dealing with issues with unions. He decided to meet their demands for better health care services in a rather unconventional way and that was by giving them exactly what they wanted in the form of a questionably invasive health screening system.

    Pending- mostly looks good, but there's one thing I want to clear up first!
    Can the implant detect viruses, bacteria, prions or toxins in the body, or can it only diagnose illnesses from symptoms and changes in body vitals alone? If it's the latter, keep in mind attempts to diagnose certain diseases would be unreliable– knowing the specific kind of bacteria involved in an infection, for example, is important for treatment if the illness is serious.

    It measures levels of chemicals in the body so if they're not at baseline for some reason or another then the system would detect it. So yeah it can pick up on bacteria and the like but it's limited in that because the system is made to be cheap and easy to implement, false positives and negatives when diagnosing tend to happen anyway.

    So it can detect the presence of bacteria, but is it able to determine the specific strain involved?

    That itself would require further action by the people accessing the system to check. It can give a ballpark but that's where a lot of the false results come from.

    Gotcha. Edit that into the app and you're good to go.
