mHealth & Wearables

Healthcare has a Design Problem Wearables have a Perception problem

My 20 minute talk will discuss mHealth and Wearables and I’ll try to give an overview of how the transition of the internet to a device dominated network will impact on the healthcare industry before showcasing our experiences working with:

> Seamlessly connected medical devices that help Patients with chronic diseases better self manage their health.

> Clinicians on the frontline who have transformed the way they practice and perform surgery through the use of seamlessly connected medical devices and wearable tech.

> Elite athletes who are using wearable tech to set new records and stay ahead of the competition.

After the talks and Q&A there will be a demo stand where delegates can get hands on with the mHealth tech profiled in my presentation.

Can’t make it to Dublin? Refresh this page on the 28th May after my talk and you’ll see my slides and be able to watch a video of my talk. It’s also worth checking out this comprehensive global listing of mHealth events or why not find/start another Wearable Wednesday in your city?
