Wearables have the potential to transform healthcare through the ability to remotely measure and analyse patient data in real-time. In addition to health and wellness, they have their greatest potential in healthcare to address spiralling healthcare costs, aging populations, and the burden of chronic disease across the globe.
The integration of wearable tech with augmented reality (AR), Big Data, artificial intelligence (AI), and cloud computing solutions, as well as the falling prices of sensors, open-source application programming interfaces (APIs), frameworks, and libraries, is enabling faster and more cost-effective solutions within the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.
