Presentation Summary

However clever technology can be in extracting data from the body, it serves no purpose if consumers are not prepared to wear the necessary sensors / devices in the first place.
Having designed several different wearable systems in consumer healthcare, including Carin by Lifesense Group (also speaking at Wearable Europe), we will show how to approach the design and development of a wearable system to give you the best possible chance of it being adopted by consumers. This will include the design of both the hardware and software. We have methodologies, processes and tools that ensure we get the highest probability of consumer adoption.
