Medical Sensors Market – Dynamics
For the continuous monitoring of physical behaviors, activities, and biochemical and physiological parameters in daily life, sensors are being integrated into wearable technologies. The most commonly measured health data include body temperature, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, heart rate, posture, and various physical activities using ballistocardiogram, electrocardiogram and other devices. Potentially, wearable devices with photos or videos can also give extra clinical information. There are two major types of wearable devices used for studying gait patterns. For healthcare professionals, certain devices have been developed for monitoring walking patterns, such as multi-angle video recorders, accelerometers, and gyroscopes. Other devices such as mobile phone apps and on-wrist activity trackers have been developed for different types of health consumers. Wearable devices enhance a patient's quality of care and reduce healthcare costs that include patient rehabilitation outside healthcare settings.
