Healthcare @CES 2019 – Innovative Wearables & Devices
Healthcare wearables and devices are increasingly becoming popular in the consumer tech space as people now actively monitor their health to stay fit all the time. So, it is not surprising that they created quite a stir at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas amid the cacophony of televisions, robots, 5G, automation and smart home devices. From self-care, elderly-care and pain relief to fitness trackers and sleep devices, here is a look at the innovative gadgets that wowed people at the CES.
Virtual Health Assistants
You need precision to take care of the sick and the elderly. Meet Pria, a virtual home health assistant from Black & Decker, which serves the purpose well. It automates medication management and you can control the device with voice command. Using the smartphone app, it enables the caregiver to monitor an individual’s medication and healthcare schedule. Pria can be used to schedule up to 28 doses, put reminders, and dispense proper medication on schedule. With the help of voice command and a built-in camera, patients can easily reach out to families and caregivers.
Then there is Addison Care, developed by Electronic Caregiver Pro Health System, on similar lines as Pria. The company claims it is the world’s first virtual caregiver. Addison is a state-of-the-art, 3D-animated caregiver, designed to engage with ageing and chronically ill people at home and supplement their care by providing several health and safety features. Most importantly, it is capable of 24/7 in-home check-ups by monitoring activity, sending out medication reminders and verifying adherence, while providing real-time assessments. It also reads vital signs and conducts in-home examinations using company devices.
