The Use of AI-Enabled Wearables in Healthcare and Fitness Industry

Applied Tech Review | Tuesday, November 30, 2021

With AI in wearables, patients and clinicians can be tracked remotely, diagnosed remotely, and make informed decisions. Further, in the fitness industry, AI empowers products to help people take care of themselves.

FREMONT, CA: When it comes to wearable devices in the healthcare industry, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a driving force behind the Internet of Health Things (IoHT), where medical equipment and apps connect to healthcare IT infrastructure. M2M (machine-to-machine) communication and connectivity to a cloud platform are critical components of the IoT in medical equipment.

An increasing number of wearable devices incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) into their functions and user experience to provide users with real-time information and aid in making informed lifestyle decisions.

AI-enabled wearables in healthcare

Wearables in healthcare often collect, monitor, and interact with users' health data. It gives the user and the doctor timely information on a variety of health factors. Several wearable sensors monitor health in real-time, such as fitness trackers, sensors for aged care, and so on.

Wearables in the healthcare business are integrating AI in various ways to improve the quality of life. The researchers in the Google Brain ini­tiative have developed an AI-powered diabetic eye disease diagnosis system. Repetition and self-correction are employed in this system, which uses mathematical techniques based on Deep Learning.

Additionally, next-generation wearables for the blind can detect and alert the user to potential hazards by employing ultrasonic to detect obstructions in their way.

The use of AI-enabled fitness wearables

Wearables using AI can assist fitness enthusiasts in their daily workout routines. Most fitness devices allow the wearer to keep track of their daily routine. The wearable device will count and display the user's steps if he or she walks 12000 steps. There is, however, a drawback to these wearables: after a certain point, people don't know what to do with the information. Wearables with AI capabilities can keep track of data and provide the user with recommendations on what to eat, how much sleep to get, and how to train to get fitter.

Wearables now come in various shapes and sizes, and they can even integrate an intelligent voice assistant (such as Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri). These wearables have advanced sensors that generate real-time user information for tracking, evaluating, and enhancing fitness or sport-specific activities.

Taking things a step further, these smart wristbands also provide actionable information to help the user avoid injury. Wearable technology helps with optimal postures, such as bike helmets, smart glasses, smartwatches, fitness bands, and yoga trousers.

Smart Bluetooth enabled by AI Wearable fitness trackers incorporate biosensors that measure heart rate, elevation, mobility, and the closeness of the wearer to the device. These headphones contain an AI-based personal trainer, which provides real-time tracking of running, cycling, and other exercises to help individuals work out more efficiently. These headphones can help them accomplish their exercise objectives based on their specific health factors.
