Our health and wellbeing are forgotten more often than they should be, but technology like heart rate monitors can help bridge the gap in what are often our extremely busy lives.
Smart healthcare gadgets and services can improve our health by monitoring vital signs and alerting us to any unusual rhythms and behaviors for further investigation. Some can help us learn about — and potentially improve — our sleeping patterns; others will help monitor our fitness, gym sessions, and activity, and portable, smart electronics provide testing kits for everything from gluten to blood pressure readings.
There are technology vendors out there who have developed home wearables and medical devices that are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared or approved. Other solutions might not have the US regulator’s seal of approval or suit a specific medical purpose, but can still be invaluable in monitoring your health.
Smartwatches, cuffs. necklaces, and other devices small enough to be thrown into your bag that also perform as medical devices are all now common and widely available. They can be stylish, too, and can suit a range of budgets.
