The miniaturization of electronics continues to drive innovation and enhanced patient care and outcomes throughout the healthcare industry. At the forefront of these advances are devices owing their feature functionality to the performance of a new generation of sensing elements and improved signal processing.
Smart fabrics, a rapidly growing segment of the wearable devices market can include many combinations of biometric and physiological sensors depending upon the data that they are designed to collect. These data can include distance walked, calories burned, heart rate, temperature, blood oxygen level, sleep quality, location, perspiration, pressure and other data. The specifics of what is being measured drive the selection of components, signal conditioning components and connectivity chips that are used in a wearable device. The success of most medical devices is closely linked to user-interface design. This is particularly true in cases where there is substantial market competition and the associated technology has more or less matured, making user-interface quality a prominent factor in product differentiation.
