How Smart Products Are Making A Revolution in Healthcare

Smart products making a revolution

A few years ago, wearable technology meant something that you wear on your wrists such as a fitness tracker monitoring your heart and tracking your steps, but now the technology has gone far beyond that and we’re seeing smart clothes and smart shoes with embedded sensors, to electrodes implanted in the brain. The wearables industry, especially the healthcare space, is going through a quiet revolution. At our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco July 11-12 we will highlight great thought leaders and innovators from all over the globe. While these innovators will be speaking at the conference, the companies themselves will showcase their breakthrough innovations. The companies and their leaders speaking at the conference are listed below. Do not miss the chance to meet and listen to them in person and join us for #WTUS18!
