Consumer adoption of wearables and mobile sensors is set to skyrocket in 2014 and beyond, with increasingly complex devices bringing about the true realization of ‘the quantified self’. The impact these sensors will have on consumer life habits, health and the field of medicine signifies a set of complex and exciting challenges for technology designers, developers, engineers and executives.
Gadi Amit, founder of NewDealDesign and lead designer of health-tracking wearables as diverse as the Fitbit (adult activity), Sproutling (baby activity) and Whistle (canine activity), as well as medical sensors like the Insuline InsuPad, will discuss the ways wearables will fundamentally alter our measurement of health and interactions with medicine in the age of the quantified self. Gadi will also discuss how product designers and engineers can minimize user-product interaction through smart physical design, customization through 3D printing, body placement and device interoperabability.
