Tomorrow's Health: Meet the Experts on Wearable and Tracking Devices

Join our network of experts in a discussion about the impact of wearable technology in healthcare

Today, wearable technology can come as a supporting MedTech device, a watch, a ring, a pair of contact lenses or  even as a tattoo. The most common wearable technology in healthcare by far for now, are fitness sensors and smart watches. These devices  track data like heart rate, blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and other vital statistics, taking the pressure off the patient to complete these analyses manually.

But where will wearable technology lead us in the future regarding health?

With dedicated experts we are discussing topics like: 

  • How will the world look like in 2030-40 in regard to wearables?
  • How will implantable MedTech devices change our health?
  • What happens to data privacy when monitoring vital signs? 
  • Will home diagnostics will become the norm?
  • What will be the winning and disruptive technologies of tomorrow?
  • What will be future challenges in the wearables market?
  • How do  present experts shape the future in regard to wearables?
