WEARABLES: A BELIEVABLE FUTURE OR A PASSING FAD?

David Spierer, President, Human Physiology Division, WELLNESS SCIENCE, LLC

Wellness ScienceTM, LLC, a New York based data intelligence company focused on wearable product validation, will present data on the accuracy of select wearable products including activity trackers and heart rate monitors. While wearable technologies are flooding the market, several major medical bodies including the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration and others have cited lack of validation as a major obstacle to such devices becoming part of medical standard of care. Validation of new technologies removes bias, builds trust throughout the consumer base, and fosters competition between companies to develop mechanisms that deliver precise data.
