Innovation in wearable technologies has elevated to new heights in terms of extracting clinical data and making it accessible. Wireless technology is freedom; it’s about unleashing the hold of traditional methods to virtually anywhere we want. Although doctors pledge to save their patients, adverse events can happen anytime, so wireless wearable technology makes it easier for the practitioners. Through wireless devices, the data regarding the patient’s vitals can be passively collected, making it much easier for both doctor and patient. Wearable technology is a miniaturized electronic device that can be easily donned on and off the body as an accessory.
This shift has led to a complete transformation in the medical field. Hospitals are using wireless devices to monitor patient’s vitals, which saves a lot of time for both doctors and nurses as it can collect data on a 24/7 basis that can be seen anywhere and anytime by both patient and doctor. Physical activity information is the most common measurement provided by current wearable devices, but it is convalescing in the healthcare field.
Wearable technology in healthcare is a variety of wearable medical devices and supportive accessories that utilize sensors, actuators, software, and electronic patches attached to a patient’s skin to monitor his health, identify anomalies, and even treat health conditions. In 2020, the global wearable technology market topped off at $40.65 billion and is expected to grow at a rate of 13.8% compound annual growth rate from 2021 to 2028. With a market like that, it’s no surprise many medical device manufacturers embark on developing wearable healthcare devices, whether they are updating an existing product to mobile wearable medical technology. Since it is worn on the body, it is desirable for the technology to withstand the variety of environments that a patient experiences. For example, a patient may need it for daily use to monitor his vitals. Manufacturers of wearable technology are constantly making their products less cumbersome and improving their wearability and engineering.
It gives a real-world view of a patient’s vitals and response to a drug that is being given. Moreover, it reduces the cost by decreasing the time and expense of clinical visits, as well as opening up the potential for different approaches to research. Analyzing data can provide practitioners with extra information.
By presenting results in a better context, wearable healthcare devices are already a useful tool to utilize in conjunction with more conventional research approaches. For instance, they might make it possible for researchers to examine and customize care for particular patient groups. Also, using wearable medical devices in clinical trials can give patients a more reliable and useful experience and make them more likely to sign up for and participate in future trials.
The use of these compendious devices has allowed the healthcare industry to achieve a proactive environment for patients. LifeSigns’ Intelligent Monitoring System can monitor multiple parameters of several patients continuously. It proves to be a one-stop solution for multi-patient, multi-parameter monitoring in India.
