Omnipod from Insulet Corporation [NASDAQ:PODD]: Pioneering the Future of Insulin Delivery

Top 10 Wearable Medical Devices Solution Companies - 2020

Monitoring physiological parameters has never been more accessible, thanks to wearable technologies. These technologies have not only transformed the way people monitor their vitals but also present a multitude of medical solutions. Wearable medical devices are customer friendly and offer real-time data for physicians to analyze. Wearable technologies have a wide range of potential applications in the healthcare sector, such as EKG monitoring watches and continuous glucose monitoring systems.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has slowly made its way into all areas of business. The recent advancements in technology have now enabled AI wearable devices that can measure multiple vital signs. These are not just beneficial for patients, but also for doctors between house visits. With diseases such as Alzheimer's, patients' walking mechanisms, or gait, are often impaired. Gait speed, symmetry, and stride length are typically reduced in patients with the disease, and their walking pace is much more variable. These can be traditionally identified through clinical assessment or by a physician. Now thanks to wearable technology, sensors within smartphones, watches, and other wearables provide accurate data regarding the patient's gait, offering a way to continuously monitor a patient's walking habits. These data can be further enhanced using contact sensors in shoes or socks that make not of pressure readings.

Athletes have been leveraging wearable technology for years to keep track of their vitals. Today, sensors can be used to identify how much electrolytes a person is losing while exercising. Athletes can use these sensors to determine when they need to replenish their electrolytes and fluids. The technology collects and analyses perspiration from the athlete's body to monitor fluid levels.

In an attempt to help our readers identify the companies that satisfy their need for wearable technology, we have prepared a list of the most promising companies in the field of wearable medical devices. We present to you MD Tech Reviews' Top 10 Wearable Medical Devices Solution Providers - 2020.'
