Top 10 healthcare wearables to watch
The LIVE by EarlySense is a remote monitoring device that monitors sleep and vital statistics for bedridden patients. The piezoelectric sensor disk plugs into an outlet and slides under a patient’s mattress. Real time patient vitals can be monitored through a mobile application, which can be supervised by caregivers and clinicians. The device, which was only available in hospitals, was made available to consumers in January 2017. Clinical studies found that the device is 92.5% accurate when detecting sleep patterns, heart rate, breathing, movement, and other potential stressors. A monthly subscription is required to monitor the device.
