10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution | ICT and Health | Scoop.it

This year IBM dedicated its Five in Five series (an annual list of five technologies that are likely to advance dramatically) solely to sensors.

 

Digital sensors of the touch, sight,hearing, taste and smell kind along with their potential are all profiled by IBM Sensor technology is going through a renaissance as companies develop smart and innovative new ways to track data using them.

 

Sensor innovation is in-part driving the Digital Health Revolution as digital health companies find ingenius ways to integrate them in to apps, devices and other peripherals. The smartphone will play an increasing important role in all of this as they go from having six built-in sensors currently to having sixteen in the next five years.

 

If these predictions are correct then the next five years will be half-a-decade of sensor proliferation meaning the Digital Health Ecosystem will grow exponentially. In the meantime though there are already a plethora of digital health sensors in use or in the pipeline that are helping people improve and, in some instances, save lives.

Samsung’s S Health app is a native app the phone comes with the Samsung Galaxy 4 enabling you to input the calories you consume in a day and a slew of other fitness metrics.

 

As Samsung made over $180 billion in net revenue (more than Apple) for 2012 they have decided to seriously get into mobile health devices, with this it’s safe to say the age of mobile tracking to the consumer has definitely arrived.

Come on Apple or Microsoft, show us what you've got!

My guess is MS's HealthVault will be packaged into MS solutions within the next year - they have been soft-launching the service again, even in tough markets such as France.
