10 Brilliant Examples of Wearables in Healthcare

survey by Accenture states that the usage of wearables by consumers has nearly quadrupled in the four years (2014-2018), from just 9% in 2014 to 33% in 2018.

This can be attributed to the fact that these sophisticated, smart gadgets of the future have come a long way from their inception.

Powered by ultra-modern technologies such as Big Data, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, and Artificial Intelligence, in the next 25 years, wearable technology can lead to global cost savings of about $200 billion in the healthcare domain.

Multiple features and functionalities of wearables include remote patient monitoring, tracking and collecting data, enhancing everyday health and lifestyle patterns, detecting chronic conditions, among others.

Overall, these can be wonderful aids for medical professionals as well as individuals because of their accuracy and ease of use.

That said, here are some of the top wearables in healthcare that have caught our eye:

1. AVA – Focusing on Women’s Health   

Tracking period cycles can give better insights into women’s health, and that is what AVA is all about. The night-only wearable gives women insights into their fertility, pregnancy, as well as their overall health.

For pregnant women, it helps track weight, sleep, and stress levels.

The wearable is known for its accuracy with a clinical study at the University Hospital of Zurich, stating that the device identified “an average of 5.3 fertile days per cycle with an accuracy of 89 percent.”

2. AliveCor – Personal EKG

AliveCor’s Personal EKG is a portable device that can easily slip into the pockets and save lives! The FDA-cleared device takes medical-grade EKG recordings (detect Atrial Fibrillation, Bradycardia, Tachycardia, or Normal heart rhythm) in just 30 seconds and delivers it to a smartphone.

This data can be tracked over time and can be shared with medical professionals for instant review. The users just need to put their fingers on the sensors and get the information within seconds.
