With the rapid change in wearables taking place in the medical, wellness, and fitness markets, are you ready to take control of your health and become a better version of yourself?

As the wearable technology ecosystem advances, we are headed towards a future where we will be able to choose whether to have a device in our hand or an implant in our brain. It is a destiny recognized for its possibilities by various industries who continue to observe the importance of investment in this space. With rapid change taking place, we are seeing quite a lot of changes in the medical, wellness, and fitness markets, where the exploration of wearable devices, applications, and services is taking us in the direction where we will be able to take control of our health so we can become a better version of ourselves.

Prevention, Monitoring, Treatment and The Quantified Self

A recent report by ResearchAndMarkets.com stated that for the period 2019 – 2024, the medical, wellness and fitness industries will be investing in the future of wearable technology in healthcare including future devices such as implantables. The report recognized an increase in demand for improving supply factors that include developments in electronics miniaturization and innovation. Confirming the fact that we are headed towards a tomorrow where we will be able to turn to wearable healthcare devices to enhance our functionality.

“We Are Headed Towards A Tomorrow Where We Will Be Able To Turn To Wearable Healthcare Devices To Enhance Our Functionality. “

As the wheels of innovation continue to turn, we should come to expect our wearable healthcare devices to communicate autonomously and monitor systems for both real-time decision making and data gathering for future analysis. On this, the report states: “Secure Machine-to-Machine (M2M) enabled data transport, and IoT system connectivity facilitates the integration of healthcare info with data analytics solutions. Advanced healthcare data management solutions, supported by artificial intelligence, are capable of processing massive amounts of healthcare information, including unstructured data acquired from many different sources and contexts.”

When it comes to prevention, monitoring, and treatment, one of the core reasons for wearables in healthcare is to transmit information for medical support from a licensed professional.
