eHealth: One wearable wireless hub to connect them all

eHealth: One wearable wireless hub to connect them all
With the rise of the medical Internet of Things (IoT), the healthcare sector is getting much more than a facelift. Continuous data‑records collected using body‑worn medical sensors that transmit wirelessly to the cloud give medical professionals a much more complete assessment of their patients’ health. In addition to offering doctors new tools for disease prevention, early diagnostics, and follow‑up, patients benefit from closer monitoring and simplified interaction with the healthcare providers.
