Three Use Cases of Wearable Devices in Diagnosing Healthcare

Wearables are self-diagnosis enablers that make individuals conscious of their health problems. Self-diagnosis is more effective in removing the fears and mistrust about equipment and hospitals as the reliability improves as none else is involved in the monitoring.

Fremont, CA: Many improvements have been made possible by the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), as it can connect devices and neural networks for better monitoring and management. IoT is also known as the Internet of Health Stuff (IoHT) in the health sector, which links devices over the internet in the healthcare sector.

Many millennials use wearables to track their physical activity. To be able to direct people on their health routine and even diagnose health problems, AI-enabled wearables have come a long way. These wearables will share the vitalities of patients with the doctors in real-time and gain data-based insights.

Here are three uses of wearables in diagnosing health care:

• A groundbreaking move towards digital transformation is wearable biosensors. To monitor patients, Philips has come up with self-adhesive biosensors. These wearable biosensors calculate vital signs such as heart rate, ECG, skin temperature, and respiratory rate. They also have the potential for falls to be observed. Since they are lightweight and wireless, carrying and using them is easy.

• Breast cancer can be identified by another portable system produced by Niramai solutions. One of the diseases that need an early diagnosis for identification and prevention is breast cancer. The Niramai computer is a low-cost, automated screening tool that detects breast cancer using AI algorithms. This system uses thermal analytics, and maximum privacy is guaranteed.

• Blood pressure is one of our most intimidating health concerns, and regular monitoring is needed to regulate blood pressure. Since it can be carried on us, wearable devices designed to track heart rate and pressure can be useful. A watch that automatically tracks real-time heart rate, blood pressure and ECG is the MorePro fitness tracker. The watch can also be used for physical tasks, sleep, etc., monitoring.
