The market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically. Devices are being designed to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems, according to Pathfinder Software. A new infographic from Pathfinder Software takes a look at the types of wearables available, how they are used, their wireless capability and other details on this technology. Thank you to Pathfinder Software for an educational Infographic. Also, thank you to the Healthcare Intelligence Network for having this Infographic on their site.

There are six principles they can follow to do that, he said:

Make it easy to integrate into a patient’s lifestyle and a physician’s workflowMake it able to share information across various technology platformsMake it able to not just collect data but to create actionable insight that will change behaviorEnable users to share the information it collects and stores with others who support their behavior changeMake it fun to useMake it able to show a change in behavior and deliver better health outcomes
