Panel: How Sensor Technology Has Led Medtech to Real-World Success in Wearable Medical Devices

Wed. May 15| 3:00 PM - 3:45 PM | Center Stage, Booth 543

Track: Center Stage

Badge Type: Free

The convergence of consumer wearables and medical devices is now clear…just look at the most recent product announcements from Apple, Fitbit, Garmin, etc. But, the dynamics of how and when that convergence will play out are still in the "forming" stages. The early indications are showing the market evolving into 4 categories of medical wearable development, and innovation is driven by sensor technology enabling these new devices. Attendees will get unique insights into these categories, and the panel will take a clear, no-nonsense approach to discussing the opportunities and challenges in each.

Topics covered include:
  • User interfaces - wearables as a new UI for existing health and medical devices
  • Health screening - using sensors in wearables for screening of chronic health conditions
  • Medical device replacement - wearables worn outside medical facilities for higher patient compliance
  • New medical solutions - completely new systems that address previously unsolvable problems
