Wearable health and wellness devices are forecast to grow from 347M units in 2019 to 754M units in 2025 which is an 11% CAGR, according to Yole. In order to satisfy the needs of clinicians and consumers, additional health sensing needs to be enabled in the wearables of the future. This will allow a more holistic approach to remote healthcare, enabling better monitoring of body vital signs for improved predictive and preventive outcomes as well as better management of chronic diseases. According to the CDC, 6 in 10 adults in the United States are living with a chronic disease. Early detection of chronic diseases often results in better long-term outcomes with an overall reduction in healthcare spending. With additional advanced sensing for chronic conditions such as irregular heartbeats (e.g., AFIB) as well as monitoring blood pressure for hypertension, wearables will become an effective tool to mitigate the increasing costs of healthcare. This presentation will cover new sensing use cases that could provide a path to better outcomes and lower costs for healthcare providers as well as improve quality of life for individuals. Advanced sensing solutions will be discussed, as well as the challenges faced by designers of these future wearables.
