  • Wireless Health and Fitness: Bluetooth Low Energy, 3G and 4G, and Proprietary Technologies

    2Q 2011 | Report | RR-MEDS-11 | 92 pages | 67 tables | 6 charts | Excel | PDF | Powerpoint

    This report is one of a pair of capstone reports covering the adoption of wireless connectivity within the healthcare market. The sister report examines wireless in the professional healthcare setting, while this study assesses the market opportunity for wireless enabled devices and communications within the home and consumer market. Analysis and forecasts are split across three broad categories: sports, fitness and wellbeing; home monitoring; and remote patient monitoring. Technologies examined within these applications include short-range wireless protocols: ZigBee, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, 802.15.4; proprietary and low-power Wi-Fi; and cellular connectivity including GSM/GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, CDMA 1xRTT, CDMA EV-DO, WiMAX and LTE.
