From portable medical devices(portable ultrasound)to wearable medical devices is undergoing transformation,wearable medical device market growth potential.
U.S. wearable heart monitoring equipment manufacturers CardioNet announced on Monday that health insurance companies and the U.S. signed a joint three-year agreement,the joint health insurance company will purchase a large number of health insurance products for its customers.
CardioNet is the U.S. representative of mobile medical equipment company,such cooperation so that people clearly see wearable medical devices broad application prospects . Credit Suisse said the wearable technology on the market will be the next "big",the market value of the next three to five years from today 30-5000000000 U.S. dollars grown to approximately $ 50 billion . But the foreign media that with clinical care (not just fitness and health) continues to develop, Credit Suisse may predict wearable technology is still too conservative .
