The mobile health space is getting crowded, Proteus Digital Health Chief Product Officer David O’Reilly said at the Connected Health Symposium in Boston, Massachusetts.
“I find it a little tedious how many different wristbands based on the same accelerometer technology are coming out,” O’Reilly said. “But what’s happening is people are getting very comfortable with devices that are on them and around them that are sensing their body and their behavior.”
This trend, O’Reilly said, is helping to familiarize people with medical products that “are deeply involved in healthcare and chronic disease”.
