Healthcare has become an exceptionally popular area of M2M deployment, especially in the face of rising expenditures on healthcare and the need for better efficiencies.
High population growth, rising medical expenditure and limited healthcare resources are posing great challenges to today's social security and healthcare system. The pressure can be eased by innovative smart medical device and wearables with built-in IoT technologies, which keep patients and the elderly remotely connected to physicians or healthcare service providers. Such devices are able to track people's health condition anytime and anywhere, and this makes it possible for patients to be monitored, diagnosed and treated at home or on the move, without the need of visiting hospitals.
Moreover, the IoT technologies can also be applied to other fields, such as personal tracking, pet tracking and home automation, and enable people to take control of their own life freely.
