Bringing Wireless Sensors to Medical Disposables

Wider adoption and awareness of wireless-enabled sensors within consumer wellness devices is aiding interest in professional healthcare-focused devices and applications. While wireless starts to build on early adoption in professional healthcare, this report considers the potential for disposable devices enabled with wireless connectivity and worn by a patient within the on-site professional healthcare location.

The on-site professional healthcare segment of the market for wearable wireless devices is the target market for disposable wearable devices. It is a market that is already comfortable with disposable items and where workflow is set up around disposable tools. To ensure adoption, devices will have to meet a range of criteria. These locations will demand robust, proven, and healthcare-regulated devices but devices will have to be low-cost enough to be disposable. 

This report discusses a number of issues facing vendors looking to enter the market with disposable healthcare sensors such as standardization, regulated spectrum, and the contrasting demands and potential for start-up's and incumbent players in this emerging market. In addition to forecasts the report profiles notable players in the market and includes consideration of short-range wireless connectivity protocols including NFC.
