Cloud connected wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are changing the way consumers and healthcare organizations think about health and wellness. Smart mobile devices connected to sensing and control networks have created new market opportunities where none existed just a few years ago.
In 2017, 18.2 million health and wellness WSN systems—excluding sports/fitness devices-- will be shipped worldwide and annual revenues enabled by these systems will reach $16.3 billion.
In addition to reducing costs, cloud based platforms enabled by wireless sensing solutions are improving quality of care by supporting the latest innovations for aging in place, self-management of chronic conditions as well as general wellness and prevention.
Our evaluation of over 100 health and wellness WSN products found that 53% target self-management of chronic conditions such as diabetes and general wellness. Over the next five years, general wellness will increase by 1600% when it will make up 41% of the device shipments.
In this report, we analyze 16 wireless sensing applications that are transforming health and wellness.
A few of these include the following:
* Hospital operational management/RTLS
Ambulatory cardiac monitoring
Cardiac rhythm management
Blood glucose self-monitoring
* Continuous blood glucose monitoring
* Ambient sensing for wellness monitoring
* Mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS)
* Weight management and general wellness
This report is based phone interviews and surveys with 750 individuals including the following:
* 530+ early technology adopters
* 220+ healthcare organizations, developers, service providers, manufacturers and suppliers
