Quanttus CEO, Shahid Azim about wearables that could make healthcare predictive, not reactive

Developed by Boston-based medical technology startupQuanttus, the wristband collects 50 million unique data points and over 400,000 vital sign measurements per person per day, providing invaluable insights into a person's health.

Company founder Shahid Azim explains the technology was developed in response to a worrying trend in health data. "Some of the best data we collect is during and post emergencies," he tells the audience at WIRED Health 2015. "That's absolutely shocking. Its a paradigm that we're deeply passionate about changing."

[FR] Les objets connectés pour le bien-être et le sport, cantonnés au rôle de gadgets ? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

L’intérêt des consommateurs pour les objets connectés dans le bien-être et le sport se confirme. Les ventes devraient plus que tripler entre 2014 et 2016 pour atteindre 290 millions d’euros, selon les experts de Xerfi qui viennent de publier une étude approfondie, après plusieurs semaines d’enquêtes et d’analyses, sous le titre : « Le marché des objets connectés pour le bien-être et le sport – Montres, balances, tensiomètres, lecteurs de glycémie et traqueurs d’activité : perspectives et jeu concurrentiel d’ici 2016 ».

Olivier Renaudin's curator insight, May 4, 12:07 PM

Malgré de bonnes perspectives, les objets connectés ne seront pas le marché de masse espéré et resteront une juxtaposition de marchés de niche aux dynamiques et caractéristiques différentes, affirme Xerfi. " Ces objets intelligents sont en effet des améliorations de produits déjà existants avec de nouvelles fonctionnalités et de nouveaux usages. La balance connectée, par exemple, permet de suivre l’historique des mesures sur son smartphone et de partager les données avec le personnel médical ".

Health and data: can digital fitness monitors revolutionise our lives? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

From the instant he wakes up each morning, through his workday and into the night, the essence of Larry Smarr is captured by a series of numbers: a resting heart rate of 40 beats per minute, a blood pressure of 130/70, a stress level of 2%, weight of 87kg, 8,000 steps taken, 15 floors climbed, eight hours of sleep.

 

Smarr, an astrophysicist and computer scientist, could be the world’s most self-measured man. For nearly 15 years, the professor at the University of California at San Diego has been obsessed with what he describes as the most complicated subject he has ever experimented on: his own body.

Fitbit Dominates The Wearables Market, But Can It Survive The Coming Onslaught Of Smart Watches? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Fitbit products already dominate the fitness-tracker market, accounting for 70 percent of sales; together with the Jawbone Up fitness tracker (19 percent) and Nike’s discontinued FuelBand, the three companies make up 97 percent of the fitness-tracker market. But that could soon change as huge ad spenders such as Samsung, Apple, LG, Motorola and Intel get into the market along with carrier partners such as AT&T and Verizon. The wearables market is heating up fast; the question is whether Fitbit can stay ahead of the pack.
