A Lung Disease News report discusses the new wearable devices designed to help manage cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.
iCareTech’s C+ band, which was featured on the January 30 edition of NewsWatch’s monthly Tech Report, is an early example of what’s shaping up to become a wave of new wearable health-related technology products and services offered to consumers. Unlike most new technology trends that target younger demographics, smart, wearable health devices are predicted to target aging populations, helping them manage cardiovascular or respiratory diseases, such as COPD, leading to reduced healthcare costs and improved quality of life.
Wearable technology has been a popular topic of debate and conversation over the past couple of years. Research and Markets’ just-announced “Global Smart Wearable Healthcare Devices and Services Market 2015-2019? report forecasts that the Global Smart Wearable Healthcare Devices and Services market will grow at a CAGR of 30.42% over the period 2015-2019, fueled by new wearable computing devices like Apple’s forthcoming Apple Watch smartwatches.
