Health care is being revolutionized by wearable technology


Hitesh Shah from West Bengal was relieved to be released from the hospital. The 73-year-old man who recently underwent bypass surgery was eager to meet his grandchildren. While he was in the hospital, he thought about them constantly.

The only thing on Shah’s mind was how he would recover from the surgery. A lack of medical care was a major concern for him because he lived in a rural area.

For patients like Shah, wearable technology can be a godsend in many ways. According to Dr. H. Sudarshan Ballal, the chairman of Manipal Hospitals, Bengaluru, remote monitoring and healthcare delivery at home are the future of health care. Because of advances in medical technology, it is now possible to keep track of vital signs such as heart rate and rhythm at home. It will even keep track of how many calories you burn each day while you exercise. “Wristwatches can be used to track vital signs, transmit them to healthcare providers, and even alert patients in the event of an impending medical emergency,” explains Ballal.

The future of healthcare rests on the shoulders of wearable technology. Healthcare delivery and monitoring will undergo a major transformation in the near future. In other words, Ballal explains, “it means hospitals will only be used for the very sick, acute emergencies, ICU care, and surgical procedures.”

Using Fitbit’s wearable technology, Manipal Hospitals has taken a huge step forward in this direction. Patients’ postoperative outcomes, such as sleep quality and pain score, can now be monitored by clinical teams at Manipal Hospitals, allowing them to tailor their intervention to meet the needs of individual patients even after they have been discharged. s

Postoperative patients who have undergone total knee replacement, angioplasty, cardiac bypass surgery, and other high-risk surgeries benefit from the use of wearable technology. In addition to reminding patients to take their medication and participate in physical therapy, it can monitor physiological parameters and even alert patients and clinicians if there are significant deviations in these parameters.

According to Vishal Gondal, the CEO and co-founder of Goquii, wearable technology can offer new approaches to post-operative care. “An integrated Pulse Oximeter in GOQii Smart Vital smartwatch provides real-time updates on the level of oxygen in the blood. The smartwatch also measures blood pressure, pulse, and 24×7 body temperature in order to assist in post-operative care and detect early diseases.. Because of its unique capabilities, such as the ability to track sleep, steps, calories burned, and heart rate, it provides users with a wealth of information about their own health and fitness “Gondal claims this.

He says earables can help healthcare consumers analyse their biomarkers, get digital coaching, and save money on their insurance plans. “It also allows the medical community to use biomarker analysis in remote prognosis and treatment, leading to paradigm shifts in the healthcare industry from a “sick-care” model to a “preventative or wellness-based model.”
