Wearable technology in health

By Madhura Bhat Moderator Emeritus | 21 Jan, 2014

Google is testing a "smart contact lens" that can help measure glucose levels in tears. A number of devices were revealed at this year's CES from a connected toothbrush, to a sensor to track infants. Hope or hype? What is the role of wearable technology in health?

Thank you for sharing these articles! The creativity behind the mentioned medical innovations is fascinating. They have the potential to serve as a tangible and engaging way for individuals to remain invested in their health and promote early/earlier development of healthy behaviors. Would love to discuss how mainstreamed medical innovation could lessen disparities in accessing preventative and primary care!
