Modelling the mass adoption potential of wearable medical devices

Modelling the mass adoption potential of wearable medical devices | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it

Digital technologies empower users to manage their health and reduce the burden on the public health system. The mass adoption of wearable medical devices (WMDs) promotes the ageing population’s confidence besides facilitating users. Thus, the current study aims to empirically evaluate the formation of perceived product value (PPV) with the WMDs’ computability, usefulness, cost, and accuracy, the intention to use WMDs influenced by health consciousness (HCS), health anxiety (HAY), product value, and perceived critical mass (PCM), and later the adoption of WMDs among Chinese adults.

Wearable medical sensors drawn with pencil and paper | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it

The manufacture of bioelectronics designed to adhere to skin typically requires the use of expensive precursor materials, costly fabrication facilities and complex fabrication processes. Researchers at the University of Missouri put pencil to paper, literally, to expand the accessibility of wearable health monitors. A variety of medical sensors drawn on paper with a common graphite pencil can be applied to skin in a do-it-yourself approach to device design.

Connected-medical Devices and the Regulatory Landscape

Connected-medical Devices and the Regulatory Landscape | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it
Over the past year, one IoT industry segment has received a notable—and necessary—amount of cybersecurity scrutiny, standing in stark contrast to the rest of the market: connected medical devices and equipment. Where the manufacturers of Wi-Fi connected speakers may not be too concerned with security standards, connected medical device manufacturers are facing regulatory pressures to hold themselves to a higher standard.

Data from wearable devices are changing disease surveillance and medical research

Data from wearable devices are changing disease surveillance and medical research | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it

When it comes to disease surveillance, the most useful biomarker is fever, a direct sign of infection. But most wearables do not measure temperature, because accurate readings are hard to do. So a proxy had to be created using the standard things they do measure, such as heart rate, sleep and activity level. Resting heart rate, measured when people are sitting still, varies a lot from person to person—anything between 50 and 100 beats per minute counts as normal—but each person’s rate is generally stable. When the body fights an infection, however, the rate goes up, often dramatically. With covid-19, data from wearable devices showed that this uptick happened four days before people felt any symptoms.

The Current State of Optical Sensors in Medical Wearables

The Current State of Optical Sensors in Medical Wearables | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it

Optical sensors play an increasingly important role in the development of medical diagnostic devices. They can be very widely used to measure the physiology of the human body. Optical methods include PPG, radiation, biochemical, and optical fiber sensors. Optical sensors offer excellent metrological properties, immunity to electromagnetic interference, electrical safety, simple miniaturization, the ability to capture volumes of nanometers, and non-invasive examination. In addition, they are cheap and resistant to water and corrosion. The use of optical sensors can bring better methods of continuous diagnostics in the comfort of the home and the development of telemedicine in the 21st century. This article offers a large overview of optical wearable methods and their modern use with an insight into the future years of technology in this field.

Digital Health Solutions Must Avoid Replicating The Pitfalls Of The In-Person Experience | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it

Despite the convenience, though, the experience has had all the hallmarks of an in-person experience: the wait times (with no courtesy message to inform if the doctor is running late and for how long), the absence of eye contact during the encounter as the physician scrolls through screens at the other end and the inability to review medical information together. It's almost as if the brick-and-mortar experience of a clinic visit has been replicated in a virtual environment.

Reporting adherence, validity and physical activity measures of wearable activity trackers in medical research: A systematic review | Connected medical devices | Scoop.it

Wearable activity trackers are gaining traction in medical research, providing both real-time and remote monitoring of physical fitness. Activity trackers offer an excellent source of personalized physical activity data from patients, as well as healthy individuals, that would provide insights into healthcare analytics and user-feedback on health status. In addition, these activity trackers would also allow researchers to monitor symptom severity and assist clinicians in providing their patients a more holistic care. Despite the promise of wearable device technology, there is still a lack of standardization in the medical literature regarding the analysis and reporting of adherence, validity and physical activity data generated by these activity trackers.
