The Future of Wearable Health Monitoring Technology: 1 Big Prediction, 2 Obstacles, 3 Calls to Action Explored
How should these devices evolve, and, more importantly, what could that mean for the future of the wearable fitness and health monitoring market? That’s what we’d like to discuss.
As designers, we are often charged with developing products that fit with the human body, such as wearable electronic devices, handheld tools, and larger-scale equipment like surgical tables and CT scanners.
This would be an easy task if all humans were built alike, or if each product only had one unique user, but that’s not likely the case. In reality, there are many types of people who will be using the product you are designing.
