New Health Technologies at CES 2024

At CES 2024, one of the premier technology events in the world, held in Las Vegas every January, there were several exciting trends in healthcare tech. Here are the top 3 trends we saw:

1. Wearable Health Devices: With the increasing popularity of wearable technology, CES 2024 showcased advanced health monitoring devices. These wearables integrate sensors to track vital signs, sleep patterns, stress levels, and even provide real-time health advice.

 2. AI-Enabled Healthcare Assistants: Artificial intelligence continues to play a significant role in healthcare. CES 2024 showcased smart healthcare assistants, powered by AI, that can provide personalized health recommendations, answer medical questions, and even assist in monitoring chronic conditions.

3. Virtual Reality in Healthcare: Virtual reality (VR) has been making strides in healthcare, and CES 2024 highlighted innovative uses of VR technology. From immersive therapy sessions for mental health to surgical simulations for training purposes, VR has the ability to revolutionize various aspects of healthcare.

Let’s dive deeper into each.

In wearables, we saw the Evie Ring. It is the first medical-grade health wearable that’s designed specifically for women.

Evie combines health and wellness metrics such as heart rate, heart rate variability, oxygen saturation, menstrual symptom and mood tracking, sleep patterns and vitals, active minutes, and calories burned to reveal a holistic picture of the user’s health. That data as well as personalized and actionable insights are delivered via a mobile app.

When it comes to AI Healthcare assistants, check out BMind. It is the world’s first AI-powered smart mirror for mental wellness, acting as a health companion capable of identifying mood and helping manage stress.

Built on a new generation smart mirror software from the CareOS platform, BMind provides personalized recommendations and experiences based on a user’s mental state, as part of a seamless, touchless experience with gesture recognition, voice command, and intent detection.

And virtual reality is proving to be a huge player in healthcare. This is the case for VRelax, a scientifically validated virtual reality app aimed at people within mental health care, hospitals and the business community.

VRelax allows consumers to manage their stress levels themselves. It is a relaxation tool against stress, burnout, anxiety and depression. But it is also a distraction tool for pain distraction, physical discomfort and medical technical procedures. From mild stress to severe psychological complaints, VRelax can provide relief at any time and place.

We’re excited to see how these new innovations will improve lives around the world and allow everyone to take even more control over their well-being.
