What’s Next with Wearables? Industry Experts Discuss the Rapidly Evolving Technology Landscape and Its Implications for Physical Activity and Sport

Wearable technologies, including those for consumer, sports, and clinical purposes, continue to grow rapidly. This creates both great promise and potential opportunities but also myriad challenges. For example, it is not clear how to balance the differing paces of technology development, scientific methods, and healthcare practices. Further, there are challenges with finding the “right” tool for each person’s personal needs, while acknowledging the need for standardized measures and protocols, which are foundational for robust science.

The purpose of this session is to discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by wearable sensors for clinical care, research, and sports medicine. This includes a panel Q & A with “on-the-ground” industry experts actively creating these tools for these uses.
