WEARABLE DEVICES MAY PREVENT FALLS AMONG ELDERLY PATIENTS

Wearable fitness tools manufacturer Sensoria Inc. has partnered with Orthotics Holdings, Inc. in order to create an Internet of Things wearable orthotics sensor. The Smart Moore Balance Brace is capable of helping elderly patients prevent falls and maintain stability. Healthcare providers can use these wearable devices to monitor patients remotely including their gait consistencies and physical activity levels.

There are sensors installed into these devices as well as an Internet-connected anklet to connect to the Smart Moore Balance Brace. The anklet is then linked up to a mobile health application, which accesses data about the patient’s movement and gait. Both doctors and patients can track the results from these Internet-connected sensors.
