Current Consumer Wearable Technology Is Paving The Way For Future Mhealth

Parks Associates research has indicated that about 30 percent of homes in the United States that have broadband connections already have some form of connected device that can be used for health purposes. It has also estimated that by the end of next year, there will be over 32 million American consumers who will be actively tracking their fitness and health either by way of wearable technology or another form of mobile device.

EQUALLY, USING WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY DEVICES WITHIN THE MOBILE HEALTH FIELD HAS ALSO BEEN ON THE RISE.

Director of health and mobile product research at Parks Associates, Harry Wang, explained that as popular as wearables are becoming, they are also starting to stand out within the health and medical industries. These gadgets are being seen as a wonderful opportunity for mhealth uses, such as monitoring vital signs (like blood pressure or insulin levels), which can be very helpful for improving health care access and quality.
