Wearables, Ingestibles, and Implantables
What is Possible?
Ingredients for Success
The medical possibilities for intelligent, internet-enabled medical devices is vast. To date, the wearables market (think Fitbit, Apple Watch and so forth) has made the most of the early running. But the scientific value for ingestibles and implantables represents a different level of magnitude.
Imagine receiving a text message notifying you that your grandmother forgot to take her pill this morning. The technology is within our reach. Ingestion monitoring systems have been approved and tested extensively.
Imagine a diabetic patient having a device fitting inside their body that measures their sugar levels and automatically releases insulin when it is needed.
