From drug development to medical wearables

Covering everything from personalised drug development, to medical wearables and providing support and care in the wider community for vulnerable people.

Benefits are wide ranging and could include:

  • Health alert monitoring – wearables coupled with and in-home sensor and communication networks to helping older people to live independently for as long as possible. The existing analogue telephone lines for telecare – currently used by 170k people in Scotland – will be turned off in 2025, presenting a major opportunity to introduce and apply IoT and other digital solutions
  • Smart devices and implants – communicating data to an app to support surgical after care.
  • Wearable devices – for tracking the vital signs of hospital patients and alert medical staff when a condition worsens in real-time
