As we get older, our bodies start to slow down, and we find that we develop illness or conditions or that we just don’t work quite as well as we used to. Having that little peace of mind when in your senior years can mean everything for thousands of people, and that is just what healthcare wearables are looking to achieve.
Healthcare wearables are becoming more and more popular as we see a rise in the aging population and their ability to pay for new technological treatments. A recent study carried out by researchers Frost & Sullivan projected that global market for healthcare wearables will rocket over the next five years. Already a market worth more than $5 billion, this figure is set to rise to a staggering $18.9 billion by 2020.
Many elderly patients are jumping on board with these handy devices as they can literally be lifesavers. One of the many innovative products getting ready to hit the market is the Intelligent Asthma Management System by Health Care Originals. This device will alert the user if there is an oncoming asthma situation and allow the user to get real-time monitoring and treatment plans.
There are lots of other healthcare wearables available at the moment for both patients and doctors also. The Valedo Back Therapy is a device designed to help those with lower pack pain. By giving the user specific exercises to do it is effective in targeting the areas that in most need of treatment. Another ingenious healthcare wearable on the market has this time been designed with healthcare professionals in mind. The marvelous device will use disposable patches and Bluetooth to monitor and send vital information to those that need it.
Although these products all seem amazing and should be available to all, there is still a long way to go before the market is flooded with such devices. People have to be able to have 100% total faith in both the product and the company in order to entrust their lives with these devices, as sometimes they will be used in replacement of hospital monitoring. Many a company have tried to launch healthcare wearables and failed after only a short while, so the companies must stay on top of technology, and consumer needs to stay ahead of the game on this one.
