As technology evolves, use cases in the healthcare industry multiply in scope and impact. Smart sensors are at the core and will fundamentally transform healthcare as we know it in the coming years.  These technologies harness the power of vital reporting systems in forms as small as a band aid or as large as a smart city. Capable of monitoring and reporting a wide range of clinical data, smart sensors detect changes critical metrics while more and more eliminating the user burden brought on by tangled wires and bulky machines. Whether in a wheel chair recovering from surgery or living the life of a star athlete, the benefits of a less inhibiting sensor are boundless and can be transformative for many types of patients across a wide spectrum of conditions.

We want your help in identifying with the next wave of smart sensors that will increase wellness around specific discrete or chronic conditions– these can be commercial products already in use or those currently in research and development. We understand that Apple Watches and Fitbit’s are today – what is tomorrow? Five years from now?

Your ideas will go straight to one of the largest healthcare influencers in the nation and could very well dramatically improve the health and wellness of millions of people, so think outside the box and give it your best!
