On A new wearable device has been created with the goal of predicting the growth of cancer months before it would be found otherwise. The report on the device has come out, showing how this device could potentially change the lives of many individuals. Many other medical devices have come out in recent times being connected somehow to this wearable industry. With the industry on wearables producing a large number of these devices in the recent times, it seems only likely that the industry will continue to grow at a quick pace.
One of the scientists working on the project, Rajeev Suri, stated that “with these sort of products, you can start to prevent stuff before it occurs and we think through biomarkers you can even figure out cancer several months before it occurs. Think about how important that is when every month and every day is important to a cancer patient.” The company that has been heavily investing in this type of technology is the tech giant Nokia.
They recently stated that they have been investing in health technology, creating an entirely new sector of the company that will be devoted to researching health related devices. Other wearable tech devices are being created such as devices that could monitor cholesterol, lactic acid, and glucose levels. These are just a few of the potential breakthroughs that could occur in the coming weeks to months.
With this industry being so relatively new, wearables seem like they have a large amount of potential to take over a big sector of the tech industry. The hopes are high that this industry can continue to produce devices at the rate it currently is, helping to advance the entirety of the tech world as remove further into the new year.
