Wearable technology in healthcare

Use wearable technology in healthcare to continuously monitor physiological parameters at home, at work, and on the move.

Wearable technology in healthcare runs a broad spectrum. Consumer-focused health and fitness trackers track athletic activities and daily behavioral patterns. On the other end of the spectrum, medical grade remote patient health monitoring devices track vital physiological parameters, continuously analyze the results, and alert caregivers in the case of an emergency.

Meanwhile, closed loop wearable medical devices that track physiological parameters and, when necessary, administer drugs or other forms of treatment are gaining traction to support patients with chronic conditions.

Designing health wearables that users trust

While quality, reliability, and security are essential requirements across the IoT, it is even more true for IoT in healthcare. When it comes to protecting their wellbeing, their health and their privacy, users and patients have little tolerance for slip-ups, which, in some cases, can have disastrous consequences for device manufacturers.
