    1Q 2012 | Report | RR-BODY-12 | 77 pages | 110 tables | 10 charts | Excel | PDF | Powerpoint

    Wireless within wearable devices, as within most devices, brings a new level of mobility and flexibility. For wearable sensors monitoring the performance or condition of an individual, it means being able to collect more data over longer periods of time without interrupting an individual's usual routines. Wireless has been embedded in wearable sensors for years, but a new way of wireless protocol standardization and simplified connectivity to online applications is driving a new wave of device development and adoption. This report focuses on the development, current adoption, and potential for embedded wireless communication technologies within wearable fitness and medical sensors. Such devices include heart-rate monitors, glucose measurement sensors, sleep monitors, activity sensors, and others. Examined in the report are the key technologies, applications, industry players, and associations that are shaping and growing this market as well as some of the issues yet to be overcome. The report splits the market for wearable wireless devices within sports and healthcare into four categories: sports, fitness, and well-being; home monitoring; remote patient monitoring; and on-site professional healthcare monitoring. The report also assesses the market for wearable devices embedded with wireless communications across two wireless connectivity options: short-range wireless and embedded cellular connectivity.
