Personalized Healthcare Calls for Innovative Wearables and Medical Devices

Because the world population is aging, chronic diseases are on the rise and healthcare costs are reaching unsustainable heights, it is essential to detect pathologies early. The Internet of Things (IoT) is now poised to transform the healthcare industry by providing wireless connectivity and sensing. Body-worn electronics and implanted devices, equipped with tiny sensors that continuously monitor vital parameters and securely report anomalies to appropriate physicians, will improve patients’ quality of life while delivering timely medical help. Personalized healthcare is making medicine participatory, personalized, predictive and preventive (P4 Medicine). Medical device and high-tech companies are joining forces to satisfy a growing demand that might reach 20 billion medical connected devices by 2020. Successful medical device and pharmaceutical companies are using engineering simulation to develop systems that ensure high reliability, provide data privacy and achieve regulatory compliance quickly. Learn how platform-based engineering simulation maximizes the IoT opportunities for personalized medicine.
