Synopsis:


Mobile sensing technologies promise to revolutionize healthcare by providing low-cost patient-centered solutions with real-time patient to doctor monitoring.

Advances with low power wireless communications, MEMS and multi-sensor arrays have resulted in viable body area network applications for clinical patient monitoring, assisted care, at-home chronic disease management and general wellness.

Global annual sensor shipments for mobile sensing health and fitness devices-- including dedicated devices and health/fitness enabled smart devices such as smart watches, smartphones and tablets— will reach 515 million in 2017 up from 107 million in 2012.

At the same time, there has been enormous growth of mobile sensing apps for smartphones and tablets. By 2017, there will be 1.4 billion mobile sensing health and fitness app downloads worldwide and health apps will increase the fastest..


Mobile sensing solutions include wearable and implantable sensors as well as carry-able devices that can be used while the user is mobile. We have analyzed 200 mobile sensing products and 43% are focused on solutions for healthcare such as cardiac/ECG, blood glucose, multi-sensor vital sign monitors and a growing number of consumer health and wellness products.

Based on input from over 2,000 individuals, this report analyzes 16 mobile sensing health and wellness markets, key technology advances such as low power transceivers, protocols and MEMS sensors as well as in-depth evaluation of >70 companies and their products.

In particular, we focus on the following developments:

• Wearable Wireless Sensors
• Smartphone Integrated Carry-able Sensors
• Smart Mobile Devices & Mobile Apps
• Smart Watches

The report also presents the key findings from three separate surveys with online consumers, early technology adopters and developers conducted in late 2012 and the first quarter of 2013.

 


Primary Research:


This report is based on phone interviews and surveys with 2,000 individuals including consumers, manufacturers, developers, suppliers and government officials.
