Smart medical wearables to improve quality of life
Smart medical wearables are poised to improve the quality of life, one of the topics to be discussed at the 4th annual Medical Wearables conference and expo beginning May 15 in California. With over 200 attendees and more than 30 exhibitors, the two-day conference will showcase technology and industry insights from the leaders in medical wearable technology.

The expo will identify emerging technologies and application trends, and provide opportunities to exchange ideas, form new companies, and network with industry peers. Topics to be delved into include next-generation medical wearable technologies, wearable sensors, emerging applications, trends and challenges, roadmaps, R&D, M&A, competitive forces, market drivers and disruptive technologies.

"Medical wearables are the next big thing. History will show that FitBit and Apple Watch are just early primitive devices, and that the next wave of smart medical wearables will revolutionize healthcare and dramatically improve quality of life," said Mike Pinelis, president and CEO, Microtech Ventures and MEMS Journal, conference organisers.

"Excellent mix of technology and application talks coupled with networking opportunities. Nice to see a meeting where such a high proportion of the attendees were present for the entire conference," said Jason Rouse, technical marketing manager, Wacker Chemical, attendee for the previous edition.

The discussion topics at the conference are emerging types of wearable sensors, materials, and smart fabrics, business trends, market projections, M&A developments, and startup activity, wearable device applications for medical diagnostics and screening, digital health, quantified self movement, and usage paid insurance and technology transfer, ecosystems and hubs, company formation among others.

"I really enjoyed participating in the conference in the last couple of days. The subjects addressed during the presentations are right on the spot in terms of the challenges and opportunities in the wearable segment. I also enjoyed the opportunity to talk to other players trying to address the same challenges," said Ruben Balbuena, senior technical product marketing manager, ROHM Semiconductor, another participant.
