Accurately monitor biometric data with wearable technology

Wearables are an essential part of our world. From smartwatches to smart shoes, more and more products are finding their way to the consumer. In addition to consumer use, wearables are also used in a wide range of sectors, from healthcare to sports.

By combining wearable technology with the Internet of Things (IoT), users can collect accurate and valuable real-time biometric data. Applying this combination has many advantages.

Wearables in healthcare: comfort, safety, and efficiency

The main advantage of wearable biometric sensors is that they can monitor remotely. Sensors allow wearables to track biometric parameters, including a patient’s heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature. All data can be collected and recorded automatically and remotely. For example, if a patient’s blood pressure rises suddenly, an automated system can recognize it and immediately alert a doctor.

While the patient’s condition remains stable, the doctor can devote his or her time to other patients. An additional advantage is that this approach allows patients to go home earlier, where they have more comfort and possibly more control over their treatment.

Sportprestaties verbeteren

Improve sports performance

In sports, increasing the level of performance is essential for success. To move forward, more and more athletes, teams, and coaches are using massive amounts of biometric information. For example, by equipping football teams with wearables during training, the coaches can record and track the position of their players in real-time, in addition to their speed, metabolic load distance, acceleration, and dynamic stress load. This allows them to work on their tactical game while maintaining an optimal condition.

Wearable solutions, ranging from simple heart rate monitoring to sleep tracking, enable more personalized training programs.

Providing safety in harsh working conditions

In tough working conditions, safety is a top priority. Think of the army or the fire brigade. There are also many industrial environments where employees are faced with challenging conditions, for example when handling hazardous materials, high temperatures, or complex and powerful equipment. Wearables offer ways to develop new safety practices without compromising high levels of performance.

One application is the remote monitoring of vital statistics during training or in action. For example, by monitoring a firefighter’s biometric data via a wearable – while also tracking environmental parameters, such as air temperature and CO2 levels – a team member can remotely predict when danger, such as overheating, is imminent and intervene quickly.
