This year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) just kicked off at Las Vegas with more than 4,400 companies exhibiting consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more. Like each year, numerous companies will showcase wearable devices at the CES 2020. Our WT | Wearable Technologies team is on the show floor to bring you all the latest news on the world’s largest technology show. Here are some of the companies showing off their wearables at this year’s CES:
Electromedical Products International
Electromedical Products International is showcasing its Alpha-Stim, an electrotherapy device that can effectively treat chronic, acute, and post-traumatic pain, and anxiety, insomnia, and depression. The handheld cranial electrotherapy stimulation device delivers lasting results for pain, anxiety, depression, and anxiety without dangerous side effects, tolerance, or addiction. This drug-free treatment device has been cleared by the FDA. In 30+ years and clinical studies involving more than 8,800 people, Alpha-Stim users have reported no serious side effects. The two most common side effects were headaches (0.1%) and skin irritation at the electrode sites (0.07%, only seen in light-skinned people). Treatment with the device takes only 20 minutes and can be used at home. It delivers microcurrent through small clips worn on the earlobe to the brain to stimulate specific groups of nerve cells. Alpha-Stim is portable and the earclips are non-intrusive and appear as earphones.
Amazfit will be launching at least three new wearables for 2020. According to a company tweet, Amazfit Bip S – a renewed version of the original Amazfit Bip -would be announced at the show. The Amazfit Bip featured an astonishing 30+ days of battery life on a single charge, a reflective always-on color touch display, GPS, barometer, geomagnetic sensor, PPG heart rate sensor, 3-axis accelerometer for activity, sports and sleep tracking, while weighing only 1.1 ounces (31 grams). Amazfit Bip also allows you to receive emails, text messages, calls and app notifications on the watch display. You can track your runs (indoor and outdoor), cycling and other sports with detailed GPS routes and stats. Now, if another tweet from the company is true, Amazfit will also introduce smart earbuds and potentially even smart running shoes at the show.
Imagine taking care of your diabetic child, parent, or friend without subjecting them to bothersome or painful monitoring devices or continuous finger sticks. AerBetic is showcasing its wearable non-invasive diabetes alert system that uses nanotechnology-based gas sensors. The sensors detect target gases, indicative of blood glucose levels, at parts-per-billion levels. The device connects to smart phones and smart home devices via Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi. Alerts are displayed on a mobile app, along with periodic reminders to check blood glucose levels. The app can also notify caregivers of patient status and will relay sensor and diagnostic information to a cloud-based data warehouse. AerBetic uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to continuously improve the performance of the sensors and fine-tune each unit to the individual patient.
NightWatch will be showcasing its epilepsy detection wearable at CES 2020. The device is an upper arm strap-on that measures the heart rate and movement of the sleeping person, directly from the body. The device detects device detects tonic seizures, tonic-clonic seizures, hyper motion seizures and clustered myoclonic seizures, alerting caregivers of possible epileptic seizures that could result in unexpected death due to epilepsy. The audio and visual alert system delivered by the device can be forwarded to cellphones and call systems. It can be connected to the NightWatch Portal where users can see a readout of their heart rate and motion data. There is no discomfort. You almost don’t notice that you’re wearing the armband.
Grapheal is showcasing its wearable patch that can continuously monitor wounds, empowering caregivers with an improved and individualized wound assessment tool. The electronic wound patch measures and stores wound bio parameters, then communicate them to a medical cloud via a smartphone app. Thus, nurses and doctors can monitor remotely the wound healing evolution and be alerted of any early stage infection and prevent complications. Grapheal patch aims at making any bandage smart & connected. Grapheal’s patch technology synthesizes pure graphene into a non-invasive dressing that can stimulate wound healing. The bandage is ultra-flexible; therefore it can adapt to any shape of wound.
