The Future of Wearables Is Implanted

Human-BatteryIt’s interesting how many people recoil at the idea of implanted wearables. Cochlear implants have been around since the 1980’s, contraceptive implants since the late 1990’s and a plethora of implanted devices have either kept people alive or improved their quality of life from knee replacements to pacemakers. Meanwhile, wearable devices are getting smaller and smarter. It’s only a small stretch of the imagination to envisage a time of wearables worn subcutaneously (below the skin) and monitored outside of the body. The relationship of technology and science is a fascinating and are a few of the most innovative ways implants are transforming the lives of many.
