Healthcare devices

Next generation monitoring devices will be worn on the body to monitor conditions such as blood glucose levels in near-real time and allow them to collect considerably more data over the course of a day.

Initial examples of this novel approach such as wristbands that are capable of measuring how far a person has walked and pulse rate are already available. Unobtrusive undergarments designed for use during workouts allow for data to be collected on key parameters such as pulse, breathing rate, posture, and even distance traveled.

As beneficial as these monitoring options are, however, the biggest breakthroughs may be yet to come. What if people with diabetes no longer had to prick their fingers several times a day to measure their blood glucose in order to adjust their insulin dose? This would not only eliminate the pain but also make it much easier to collect this vital data more frequently.
