Wireless in Extended Medical Monitoring

This study focuses on the development and adoption of wireless communication technologies supporting a new market for more accurate monitoring and treatment of patients with long-term diseases. A key part of this market: the wearable wireless sensors that enable patients to be monitored in comfort wherever they are, making monitoring unobtrusive. In addition, the connectivity of such devices to the wider network and systems allows for nearly real-time monitoring and greater observation and medical compliance. Systems have been available for more than thirty years but these have tended to be in the fitness market. While ABI research has delivered detailed studies of all the potential markets for wearable wireless sensors, this report focuses entirely on those that fall within the disease management domain. A growing number of industry efforts, alliances, and partnerships have begun to provide a foundation for a disease management domain to emerge, and the first products are already available. Even so, there are a number of questions regarding the directions that the market will take and the technology choices that will be adapted adopted and deployed.This study explores the market drivers and end-user demand for wireless disease management equipment related to remote healthcare management and monitoring. The emphasis of this report is on those key hardware devices that will be wireless-enabled: wearable sensors, wireless to WAN gateways, and M2M connectivity within devices and gateways.Social, economic and market dynamics are all leading to new methods of long-term chronic disease management and increasing the potential for wireless to impact the healthcare market.Detailed forecasts are provided to illustrate the growth trends across device types and across wireless interfaces both standard and proprietary,
