Many products with such capabilities are currently commercially available in the market and are targeted at health marketers, researchers, health conscious individuals, and athletes. The current generation of Wearable Medical Devices mostly relies on user intervention to record data that is processed offline later on.However, the Next Generation of Wearable Devices is expected to perform functions beyond recording and aim to offer patient monitoring with real-time assessment and feedback. Wearable medical devices offer various solutions to both, patients as well as physicians or health care providers.

Therapeutic Purposes or Disease Management
Monitoring & Feedback, and
Assisting in Rehabilitative Processes
