Google’s medical wearable for doctors to monitor patients


Medical-WearableGoogle has designed a medical wearable which is specifically for the medical profession. While all the companies are busy designing wearables for the consumer market, Google has gone the noble way. 

The wristwatch-like medical wearable can track your pulse, activity level, heart rate, skin temperature and concerns like exposure to light and noise levels.

Google’s head of life sciences Andy Conrad said “Our intended use is for this to become a medical device that’s prescribed to patients or used for clinical trials.”

By wearing the device the patients can send out critical info to their physicians without having to actually go visit them and hinder their normal lives. The device will undergo more regressive testing this summer, and hence a regulatory clearance in Europe and the U.S.
