In our weekly post series we had two Industry Updates with medical deserts, and medical drug delivery with drones . Here is an additional important component using e.g. the microneedle sensors from last week’s Industry update, to support shortage of care in rural and urban areas.

Wearable technology devices are smart electronic devices that can be physically worn by individuals in order to automatically collect, monitor, analyse and communicate personal data, advice, warning, and in emergency case alarms. Examples of wearable devices are smartwatches, wristbands, accessories, sensors embedded in garments, and even tattooed on the skin.

Here some aspects which are explained in more detail in the video below:

➡️️ Telemed, remote patient monitoring, clinical trials, self administration

➡️ Glucose monitoring, Heart monitor, on-body infusion

➡️️ Designing aspects

➡️️ Ergonomics optimised

➡️️ Robust performance

➡️️ Design strategy

Whilst most smart devices monitor biometric data for medical purposes, wearable technology has expanded into a wide array of other fields, ranging from sports technology to entertainment and fashion which also makes these applications easier to use in the medical field and encourages even more people to go for telemedicine.  

Here is an interesting discussion about medical wearables …
