7 Health Tech Trends From CES 2017

  1. 1. 7 #HealthTech Trends from #CES 2017
  2. 2. This presentation distils some of the technology & gadgets on show at CES 2017 into 7 distinct Health Tech Trends. While none of these are new to CES at least compared to the previous 2 years I have visited, they are growing rapidly and have potential to impact the health sector
  3. 3. The 7 Tech Trends 1. Sleep 2. FemTech 3. Mental Wellbeing 4. Helpful Robots 5. Self Management 6. Evolving Wearables 7. Beauty
  4. 4. Pain Relief 1. Sleep
  5. 5. Pain Relief 1. Sleep A cat pic and the topic of sleep, pretty boring start to a Slideshare yeah? Well if you are falling asleep while reading this I won’t take it personally. According to the largest ever consumer study released at CES there is a 79% chance you are sleep deprived so that’s most likely the reason.
  6. 6. SleepScore Labs reported some of the following eye opening facts from over 1.5 million nights of good old American sleep • Those 79% I mentioned get less than the recommended 7 hours sleep • Men average 5hr 45m & women 6hr 9m per night • 30 mins of exercise can increase sleep time by 14 mins • The right mattress can give you another 20 mins More study results & an infographic
  7. 7. Pain Relief Image via The Sleep Number Smart Bed Sleep Number have an award winning solution for that sleep deprivation you probably have. Their bed adapts to you and your partners needs to ensure maximum comfort. It even warms your toes to help you fall asleep and raises your side of the bed if you start to snore (the positional therapy helps you and your partner)
  8. 8. Pain Relief The 2Breathe Sleep Inducer If you don’t fancy buying that bed or the toe warming thing isn’t getting you off to the land of nod rapidly enough then here is another solution The 2 Breathe device syncs up your breath via the belly band to some chill music, gradually slowing it down until the Sandman pays you a visit Photo credit: / Josh Miller
  9. 9. 2. FemTech
  10. 10. 2. FemTech Technology aimed at females is increasing rapidly and CES was no exception. A number of solutions related to fertility, pregnancy and child care. The market is skyrocketing particularly around fertility with the huge costs of medical treatment. See the next examples.
  11. 11. Pain Relief Willow Pump Willow is a wearable breast pump that lives unobtrusively in a bra and can collect milk all day with minimal hassle. An app even records how much milk has been collected Image via
  12. 12. Pain Relief Bloomlife Contraction Tracker Bloomlife have created a ‘smart’ tracker to measure a pregnant woman’s contractions, monitor these over time and display on an app
  13. 13. Pain Relief Ava Fertility Bracelet Ava is a fertility bracelet that claims to be clinically proven in predicting the beginning of a woman’s ‘fertility window’ As well as giving insights into her cycle it also tracks various wellbeing indicators such as stress Images via
  14. 14. 3. Mental Wellbeing
  15. 15. Pain Relief Doppel Mood Wearable What is the point being told you are in a shitty mood. You or someone close to you probably had that figured out. The Doppel claims to automatically alter your mood for the better before that happens. It works by emitting a pulse like rhythm that signals your brain to become more calm or alert depending on your momentary preference
  16. 16. Pain Relief Hyundai Health & Mobility Cockpit Instead of a wearable how about leaving your ’mood optimization’ to your car. The idea is similar to the Doppel wearable. It detects passengers’ (and driver’s particularly) mood and intervenes. If it senses high stress levels it calms the driver or a lack of concentration it provides an ‘alert burst’ It uses a bunch of environmental factors such as sounds, temperature, aromas & (mood?) lighting to do this Photo credit:
  17. 17. Pain Relief LifeQ and medibio partnership And in terms of the longer term, this partnership based platform brings together data from wrist worn wearables and delivers insights to consumers to help manage their stress on an ongoing basis. The platform uses an algorithm that can interpret movement and behavioral data from ’traditional’ fitness wearables to assess mental health.
  18. 18. 4. Helpful Robots
  19. 19. Pain Relief Helpful Robots An array of robots were on display and interacting at CES. Pepper whom I met at SXSW 2016 is marketed as a human helper, not specifically for health but there is a big potential for home care and ‘robotic-assisted-living’ The Lynx robot has full Amazon Alexa integration so can easily be commanded.

  20. 20. 5. Self Management
  21. 21. Pain Relief RAPAEL Smart Glove The Rapael glove allows patients to rehabilitate themselves from wrist or hand injuries. Accompanying technology and games combine efficacy and entertainment. This is indicative of the movement towards greater patient self management in the home. Photo credit: / Molly Riley
  22. 22. Pain Relief Qardio Wearable ECG Monitor ECGs used to be under the strict purview of the doctor. It was cumbersome for a patient to be fitted with a tape, lots of sticky pads and the data usually collected in a short range i.e. 24hrs to 7 days. This device gives the power to the patient, an easy to wear ECG device that needs no sticky electrodes, data can be collected at will and shared with a physician
  23. 23. Pain Relief s AI DIABNEXT® Artificial intelligence meets diabetes. Data around insulin injections, oral therapy, meals & diet, blood insulin levels and even genetic profiling can be combined to give a holistic view of the patient. This data can be used to deliver predictions and insights.
  24. 24. 6. Evolving Wearables
  25. 25. Pain Relief Motiv Ring Tracker A ring as a fitness tracker may not be a new concept but Motiv have bundled the sensors you would find on a typical wrist tracker into this smart little device, including optical heart rate tracking. Photo credit:
  26. 26. Pain Relief United FitBits United Healthcare are offering a FitBit charge as part of an incentivized employee wellness program. Ok they are not the first to incentivize wellness (I’m thinking Oscar and Walgreens balance rewards) but it is another example of the trend towards giving people the tools and motivation to stay well.
  27. 27. Pain Relief ness Virtual Exercise VirZOOM combine Virtual Reality with FitBits and a traditional exercise bike. Why go to the gym when you can go anywhere in the universe. The Fitbit measures and the VR motivates. This is an increasing trend of technologies and devices merging and becoming more integrated. Photo credit:
  28. 28. 7. Beauty
  29. 29. Pain Relief Hairmax LaserBand The Hairmax LaserBand claims to stimulate those hair follicles into regrowth mode via lasers. Yet another example of the clinic being brought to the consumer. Photo credit:
  30. 30. Pain Relief Hi there hot stuff Moving down from your hair the Hi Mirror analyses your skins condition for blemishes, spots and wrinkles and even gives you a score. Ouch! This is tracked over time and the impact of any ‘interventions’ such as skin care regimens or beauty treatments can be objectively measured Photo credit:
  31. 31. Pain Relief The first AI toothbrush It may seem like technology overkill and this did make it pretty high up on some of the ‘ridiculous lists’ of CES 2017 Tech. The smart brush gives adults insights into how there are brushing their teeth, time spent, focus areas and over brushing that may lead to gum recession. Is this a pointless use of technology or an indication that literally everything we use will have sensors that can give us data driven insights and optimize seemingly trivial aspects of our lives?
  32. 32. Pain Relief Quantified Hair This beauty product, spawned by L'Oréal and Withings attracted much derision and ridicule online. (More than the toothbrush) Basically it measures how you brush your hair and helps you optimize brushing as well as sensors to measure hair health. Regardless of whether this particular product turns out to be a dud or not there is no denying the combination of beauty + technology is growing exponentially Photo credit: AP /John Locher
  33. 33. So 7 areas, lots of shiny gadgets, some will doubtless end up being recycled within 6-12 months. Importantly we are seeing wearables for various different parts of the body and an increase in off body sensors with greater integration between devices and use of the data and machine learning to give us insights. I predict these trends will increase as individual products and use cases live or die.
