Health Wearables Part 2 – The Next Breakthrough?

Radiocasts | June 10, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Invisibles.

Visible healthcare wearables like smart wrist bands and watches are everywhere.

But what if your lifestyle preference is for non-obvious tracking devices?

Take heart. Almost-invisible healthcare wearables are entering the market, hoping to gain our trust and further improve healthcare outcomes.

Soon you may be able to use under-clothing heart rate tracking strips that detect and report epileptic seizures. And take “smart pills” that measure your blood pressure, pH, and body temperature. And you may want to try tattoo-thin strips that can store health data and even deliver medications.

How easy or hard is it to launch innovative health devices and gain profitable market share?

The experts speak.

Harry Greenspun, MD, Deloitte: “Just because I have a fitness app on my phone, it doesn’t make me an athlete.”

Scott Lundstrom, IDC: “The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed.” (William Gibson)

Bernhard Schweizer, SAP: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” (Helen Keller)
