33% of US households with broadband adopt mHealth devices

Consumers are embracing digital health and wellness devices, according to a new survey from Parks Associates. Adoption is steadily increasing within U.S. broadband households, the survey found, jumping from 26 percent in 2014 to 33 percent this year.

Fitness band maker Fitbit holds more than 50 percent market share and will likely continue to gain deeper customer roots due to the acquisition of FitSar earlier this year, the survey found.

The data shows that, when it comes to healthcare tools, consumers are becoming more savvy buyers, Harry Wang, director of mobile and health products research at Parks, told FierceMobileHealthcare in an exclusive interview.
