Wearable devices come as wrist bands, watches, glasses, clothing and much more. They help consumers keep track of their health and fitness, and their demand has drastically increased over the years. Therefore, many companies have been launching wearable devices back to back to cater to the needs of different users. Here’s a list of a few best companies that have been developing top-notch wearable healthcare devices.
Neurotech is popular for its in-home EEG setups and stands outs among others in the EEG industry. The company’s in-home EEG solution works on both Routine and Long-Term Monitored EEG studies whose results can be viewed on Neurotech’s Physician Database. It also provides remote EEG monitoring services to intensive care units and epilepsy monitoring units.
The company makes it convenient for doctors to connect with patients. During appointments, doctors can wear smart glasses by Augmendix and interact with human transcribers via live stream. The transcribes have access to the video and audio feed of the doctor and patient and can make notes as well as update patient records. This saves a lot of time for the doctors and also improves the quality of the patient documentation.
Apple is not only a big name in the smartphone industry but the healthcare industry as well. The brand’s latest Apple Watch 4 series carries an ECG that prompts the user whenever it senses irregular heart rates or rhythms, this allows the user to seek medical help right away. Other than this, the watch has several other attractive features including automatic workout detection which allows the user to create fitness goals and track their progress towards them through the Activity app.
Fitbit is another popular brand when it comes to wearable devices and has set up a competitive standard for fitness bands and smartwatches. Its latest product, Versa has some attractive features including heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and on-screen workouts. The watch also has female health-tracking, which lets women keep track of their ovulation cycle with other stats including sleep and activity. It also notifies users with reminders so they can stay active throughout the day.
MATRIX has gone big with its PowerWatch products that are distinct from other smartwatches. The watches run on dual thermoelectric and solar-cell technology instead of battery that’s why there’s no need to charge them. These watches come with plenty of features including a pedometer, heart rate monitor, GPS, and a sleep tracker. Another interesting feature of the watch is that it can tell how much energy the user is using by receiving the wearer’s body heat.
