Wireless healthcare is a growing market segment with many companies introducing new products at an increasing rate. Sensors Tips has featured many of these products ($2.25 Million Prize Offered for Breakthrough Sensing Technologies for Healthcare, Thumb Contacts Sense ECG Signals, Healthcare Monitor Relies on Wearable Body Sensor Technologies, MEMS Pressure Sensor Used in Asthma Training Device, Sensors Enable Portable Healthcare Innovations) highlighting the sensor technologies in them. In addition to improved healthcare, many new products seek to reduce the growing cost of healthcare as well.
Engineers interested in entering this field can take advantage of Case Western Reserve University’s wireless health graduate study and earn a Master of Science and Graduate Certificate. Deadline for the Fall 2013 application is April 19, 2013. The course uses the textbook, (scheduled for February 2013 release): “Wireless Health: Remaking of Medicine by Pervasive Technologies”, Mehran Mehregany, Editor.
