How Wearables can Help the Healthcare Industry Fight Covid-19?

Clinical mobile solutions, such as handheld devices or smartwatches with communication and messaging capabilities, can help staff members connect with one another and take the necessary steps to check on a patient in need.

Fremont, CA: The pandemic has made it important for hospitals to identify Covid-19 patients early and monitor their health in real-time while limiting contact between patients and medical staff. Wearable technology has the potential to play a significant role in the future by assisting in the monitoring of vital data such as the patient's heart rate (HR) and core body temperature.

Over the last few months, there is a rising number of startups with backgrounds in sports tech, health, and fitness pivot and tweak their products to help combat the spread of Covid-19. Oura's smart ring, for instance, monitors heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV) as well as core body temperature. The company used physiological data submitted by its users to define trends and develop an algorithm to predict the occurrence, development, and recovery of potential Covid-19 cases in a research study conducted with UCLA. Whoop is a Boston-based startup that has changed its emphasis from health and sports to Covid-19 and now displays how its members are combating the coronavirus pandemic.

With this in mind, healthcare wearables are emerging as a vital enabler for optimizing bedside care and clinical versatility. Patients' wearables, for example, will also instantly alert healthcare staff members in real-time whether they are in their emergency room, on the plane, or at home. Clinical mobile solutions, such as handheld devices or smartwatches with communication and messaging capabilities, can help staff members connect with one another and take the necessary steps to check on a patient in need. This is particularly important in the context of Covid-19 since every minute counts when it comes to saving a patient's life.

This is particularly important in the context of Covid-19 since every minute counts when it comes to saving a patient's life. A wireless wearable the size of a postage stamp that attaches just below a patient's throat is one of the most revolutionary devices. This stamp, created by Northwestern University researchers, can detect coughing and patterns linked to chest wall movements, respiratory sounds, heart rate, and body temperature.

People can expect to see more developments created as a result of the pandemic in the future to help keep people updated about their own health status while also helping to reduce spikes at medical facilities by improving the quality of clinical accessibility solutions and bedside treatment. Wearables' capacity for detecting early signs of Covid-19 and other infectious diseases, as well as tracking patients, will make them a common option for healthcare organizations and customers in the near future.
