Vital signs monitoring devices monitor vital parameters such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, blood glucose level, and body temperature. Apart from this, monitoring of various other additional signs such as urinary continence, pain, gait speed, shortness of breath, end-tidal carbon-dioxide, etc. are also considered in vital signs measurement depending on the severity of the disease. These devices record information of the patient’s health status time to time and helps to keep track of disease control and treatment progress. They also help minimize the risk of treatment errors and wrong diagnosis. With evolution of technology, wearable vital sign measurement devices are now available in different modalities, attractive designs, and innovative features such as increased battery life, monitoring of more than one parameter by using a single device.
Increasing healthcare awareness, rising healthcare expenditure, and technological advancements are some of the factors fueling growth of the wearable vital sign measurements market. Moreover, innovative solutions offered by leading vendors in the global wearable vital signs measurement devices market to increase the wearing comfort at affordable prices is boosting the growth of the wearable vital sign measurement devices market. However, development of the system with minimal size, and maximum battery life are the factors delaying entry of new products into the market. Moreover, high cost of the products is restraining the growth of the market in developing countries.
