«The wearable medical device market is growing at a little more than 27% annually and is forecast to reach a value of $174 billion by 2030, according to business intelligence firm Market Research Future. Given the potential of this technology to provide 24/7 health monitoring and diagnostics on an individual basis, its future growth may stretch well beyond even those numbers. The US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) are helping to bring that future to fruition by developing a skin-like device that is akin to having a “high-tech medical center at your instant beck and call.”

«Future wearable electronics potentially could detect emerging health conditions even before obvious symptoms appear, suggests a news release from Argonne National Laboratory. The devices could also perform personalized analyses of the tracked health data while minimizing the need for its wireless transmission.»
