Smarter Healthcare Using IoT Revolutionizing The Medical Industry
Internet of Things (IoT) and healthcare are revolutionizing the medical industry. Smart devices and wearables enable doctors to track their patients’ health through medical apps. Remote monitoring of vital health parameters can help doctors modify the treatment plan and can also save lives of patients by timely action on critical symptoms. Smart medical devices are also making lives easier for patients with chronic illnesses and disabilities. iHealth Smart tracks glucose levels of diabetics, Siren Smart Socks help prevent foot ulcers in diabetics and Widex COM-DEX is a smart hearing aid that can be controlled with an app.
The impact of connected devices on healthcare isn't one-sided — in fact, the healthcare industry is one of the major drivers of innovation and production in the smart device industry. This is especially prevalent when it comes to wearables.
IoT healthcare also enables collection of patient health data for early detection of diseases and preventive healthcare. Cyrcadia Health’s iTBra assists in early detection of breast cancer. Robotic healthcare assistants like Giraff provide visual feeds to bed-ridden patients and stream remote doctor consultations. However, there are inherent risks of data privacy and cyber security vulnerability which need to be addressed for scalability of IoT healthcare.
