Road to Remote Health monitoring

In 2020, we also saw numerous wearable makers apply and seek approval for platforms that can help remote health monitoring.

Vitls, based out of Houston, TX developed a clinical-grade platform that enables healthcare providers to reliably and accurately monitor key patient vital signs in real-time. 

The Vitls Platform consists of Tégo, a small and unobtrusive wearable that wirelessly records vital signs; the Vitls Cloud, where data is stored and then sent to hospital systems.

Chronisense, Ejenta, and Medopad are some of the other wearable makers who are active in the space of remote health monitoring.

2021 is expected to be an interesting year for companies in the field of remote health monitoring.
