Wearables for Physical Activity and Rehab

Wearables physical rehab

The increasing popularity of wearable physical activity monitors (WPAMs), better known as fitness trackers, has enabled the integration of technology into physical activity intervention and evaluation. However, according to a study published in the journal BioMedical Engineering OnLine, wearable technology is not only for sports and fashion enthusiasts, it can also be helpful in monitoring and aiding clinical rehabilitation. At our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference Asia 2018 in Singapore August 30-31, we will highlight great thought leaders and innovators from all over the globe. While these innovators will be speaking at the conference, the companies themselves will showcase their breakthrough innovations. The companies and their leaders speaking at the conference are listed below. Do not miss the chance to meet and listen to them in person and join us for #WTASIA18!
