The growth of wearable technology in healthcare is altering the way we are able to screen our own health. Now, sensors can notify a patient suffering from diabetes when their blood sugar is getting low, and smart contact lenses can give the vision-weakened the chance to see. While such technologies might be small, their effect can be huge.
According to P&S Intelligence, the global wearable medical devices market is projected to reach USD 67.2 billion by 2030.
Top Wearable Tech in Healthcare
The advent of wearable technology in healthcare provides solutions to diverse illnesses, such as hearing loss, vision loss, and physical disabilities. From the science-fiction feel of exoskeleton tech to the ubiquitousness of smartwatches, the field is costly.
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) detectors offer 24/7 screening to aid people with type 1 diabetes monitor their blood sugar and regulate accordingly. Such sensors can also aid those with hypoglycemia unawareness, intensive insulin treatment, or high or low blood sugar.
CGM sensors are situated under the skin, typically on your stomach or arm. Their wireless sources send data to an exterior monitor, and healthcare specialists use the offered information to make medicine adjustments. Specialists working in software development, community health, public health, or drugs might work with this populace and such devices.
As smartwatches and other wearable technologies have full-grown from new gadgets to extensively utilized health and fitness gear, it is no surprise that electrocardiogram (ECG) technology has sneaked into item applications. Electrocardiogram is a medical-grade procedure that calculates heart movement and shows any potential irregularities.
