Almost 30% of Broadband Households Own, Use Connected Health Device

New survey data from research firm Parks Associates shows that 27 percent of U.S. broadband households currently own and use at least one connected health device.

The survey of more than 5,000 U.S. broadband households also reveals that 13 percent of U.S. broadband households are very likely to purchase a connected health device within the next 12 months.

"The most popular connected health devices are treadmills, exercise bikes, and ellipticals," said Harry Wang, director of health and mobile product research at Parks Associates, in a written statement. "These devices come with built-in support for mobile health apps, which effectively merges the demands of mobile and healthcare consumers.”
