A new market study offered by Research and Markets highlights emerging trends in the use of wireless technologies in healthcare. Entitled “BiowireleSS: Market Opportunities in Wireless Healthcare, 2014,” the study shows how the combination of  biomedical wireless technology, networks, and sensing systems (BiowireleSS) is rapidly becoming an integral component of healthcare delivery.

According to the report, wireless technologies in healthcare will include smart garments and e-textiles and wearable sensors, and  epidermal electronics—small, temporary tattoo-like patches incorporating sensors that can monitor body functions, wireless transmission capability, and power generation. Also covered in the study are RTLS systems that allow tracking of both hospital staff and equipment, wireless imaging and video technologies for remote diagnosis, and smartphone apps that will bring healthcare information directly to consumers.
