The increased use of wearable devices such as fitness devices now means that there should be widespread acceptance of wearable medical/ healthcare devices that monitor and upload data to clinicians, without resistance from patients. It has been normalised as more and more of us use wearables as well as phone apps for a variety of functions. At Gm Design Development, we have recently been developing a watch for use with a common healthcare product and we see the trend for all wearables increasing. This article highlights the current trend.
