SensiAn Research’s recently published “mHealth Wellness Product and Technology Database 2014″ contains more than 370 devices from more than 100 suppliers.
From the data it is clear that Wireless Connectivity is a key component of the technology that is enabling these devices to operate. Our research shows that almost 80% of mHealth Wellness devices used some form of wireless connectivity.
Some key data includes:
60% are Bluetooth enabled
10% are ANT+ enabled
Almost 10% use a proprietary wireless technology but this number has fallen dramatically in the last few years.
It seems clear that interoperable standards are a key technology that is helping drive growth in this market.
