Sports Industry to Offer Potential Growth Avenues

Vital signs monitoring devices find immense utilization in the sports industry, wherein, they help monitor vital signs, especially heart rate. Advances in wearable medical devices have spurred innovations in headsets, headbands, and sport shirts that measure the brainwaves and vital signs of the human body.

Case in point, Biodevices has developed a medically-certified vital sign monitoring device, Vital Jacket, which is an ambulatory ECG/Holter device that combines wearable devices with biomedical engineering solutions. Vital Jacket examines heart-related issues of wearers regularly to capture accurate interpretation of the health status. Results gathered are interpreted to monitor trends, and notify wearers if they require medical visits.

How Growth will Unfold

Market players continue to view hospitals as immediate end users of vital signs monitoring devices, attributed to the expanding patient pool and greater financing capacity for these devices. Coupled with software solutions, vital signs monitoring devices are connected in comprehensive platforms where healthcare personnel easily examine the vital signs of patients in single dashboard.

Going ahead, vital signs monitoring devices will experiencing demand upheaval in home care settings, as more patients are opting for post-surgical recovery and prolonged care. In addition, patient centered medical home services are relatively cost-effective as compared to hospital stays.

Importance of Vitals Sign Monitoring Tests in Home Care Settings

Vital signs monitoring equipment parameters include measuring blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate. Vital sign monitors play a crucial role in detecting weakening vital signs such as abnormal breathing, undetectable pulse, and impaired blood flow to the heart, which serve to indicate the probability of cardiac arrest.

This enables the physician to decide whether the patient needs to be admitted in an intensive care unit (ICU) so that immediate and appropriate treatment can be administered. In such cases, vital sign monitoring devices such as sphygmomanometers, automated blood pressure monitors, and pulse oximeters play important roles in decision making. The use of vital sign monitoring devices is moderate by end users in home care settings, but adoption is projected to increase significantly in the near future.

Expanding Application in Sports Industry

Vital signs monitoring devices find extensive application in sports and fitness-related industries, and aid in monitoring vital signs, especially heart rate. Advancements in wearable health applications have led to innovations in headsets, headbands, and sport shirts, which measure brainwaves and vital signs of the human body.

For instance, Biodevices developed the first medically-certified vital sign monitoring device – Vital Jacket – which is an ambulatory ECG/Holter device that combines a wearable application with biomedical engineering solutions. Vital Jacket assesses heart-related problems of the wearer on a daily basis to enable an accurate interpretation of the health status. Results generated are processed to establish and track trends, allow maintenance of a result chart, and alert the wearer if a physician is needed to be consulted. All in all, this will see a growth in the demand for wearable vital signs monitoring devices over the coming years.
